Lovely Tony … a happy allotment, surrounded with bird song and happy children sounds.
Nice video Tony everything looks healthy and growing well.
Just watched your vid, Tony – everything looks really good ;good: Did I see parsnips in some strange looking containers?
In reply to Northern Teachers comment, parsnips in funny containers.. The 40gal drums are filled with sharp sand, a core of sand is taken out with a tube then the hole left is filled with riddled compost and 3 parsnip seeds sown As the parsnips grow they pull their selves deeper into the compost making it difficult to remove without scratching the shoulders of the parsnips., I’ve added 6inch lengths of large diameter pipe so when its time to pull the parsnips the short pipe can be removed leaving a good length of parsnip with no sand or compost round it , after adding copious amounts of water to the drums the parsnips should pull out unmarked
I’ve just enjoyed a other tour of your allotment and thoroughly enjoyed it, as usual, and the cats enjoyed the bird song! Once again I am in awe at the amount of work you put into it and how neat it all is. I am now looking forward to seeing your potato crop as my Charlottes have been very good. I have 2 Maris Piper in a large tub so will be interested to see how they fare.
