    Photo-upload-350251?1405371338 The Tomatoes 'Sunstream' & 'Gardener's Delight' that I planted out on my allotment, Plot 12A at the end of May are coming on by leaps & bounds!

    Lettuce 'Little Gem' seedling in bed No.3 harvested

    Photo-upload-350227?1405368550 I sowed some seeds of Lettuce 'Little Gem' in bed No.3 on my allotment, Plot 12a, back at the end of May 2014. These germinated quite quickly. I put them in this very narrow bed with the idea of transplanting them to another bed when the seedlings were big enough to handle. Somehow I never found ...

    Pansies 'Winter Flowering Mixed' transplanted to my allotment

    Photo-upload-350205?1405364411 I had some Pansies 'Winter Flowering Mixed' growing all winter on my balcony railings but I've now transplanted them to my allotment, Plot 12A. These Pansies were in clay pots - in aluminium rings - I underplanted them with mini-Daffs & Crocuses. As I wanted to use the pots again for summer fl...

    We have spuds!

    Photo-upload-349954?1405197892 Yesterday I saw that there were one or two brown patches between the veins on some potato leaves. Fearing that this was the start of blight I decided it was time to harvest them. I planted these through cross cuts in a sheet of black polythene spread over the bed. It really could have done w...

    Summer squash plants have sprung up amongst the runner beans!!!

    Photo-upload-349646?1405019966 A couple of plants of Summer squash plants have sprung up amongst the runner beans I have planted on a frame of bamboo canes in bed No. 4, almost in the middle of my allotment, Plot 12A. I suppose the seeds must have come from last year's compost which I dug into the bean bed earlier this year. ...

    Another crop of Beetroot 'Detroit 2'

    Photo-upload-349655?1405024212 A few days ago I harvested another crop of Beetroot 'Detroit 2', this time they were from the far end of bed No.7. I'd previously (30th June) pulled up a whole load from in between the runner bean canes. I'd planted them out at the beginning of May before the beans had germinated. I put them ...

    Garlic has now been harvested

    Photo-upload-349650?1405021950 On July 4th I lifted my Garlic bulbs as my wife wanted Garlic for cooking. But I was quite disappointed with the size I finally got! They were much smaller than I was expecting! I was talking to Gerry's allotment neighbour as he was harvesting his Garlic bulbs. He was also complaining that th...
