Allotment 04/08/09

Image047I didn’t really get to the allotment other than to harvest over last weekend but the weekend before I was up there most days. It is coming on nicely still, plenty of courgettes and kale, a reasonable amount of beetroot from the first sowing, the first runner beans and a very few peas from the two plants that survived the rabbit nibbling of the first sowing.

Image048More beetroot has been sown, more manure spread out, beans planted out and manure spread. I have had a good look at the soil on the beds where things have been grown and there is hardly any sign of the manure that was spread earlier, just four months ago. Lots more is needed up there before the next crops are planted out.
