Planted out swedes raised as plugs and various herbs. Gave the brassicas that had been assaulted by pesky pigeons a good feed to help them recover. Also took a soil sample for a little experiment (more on that later) ;)

Two separate visits today.
First time I cut the grass on path at side of allotment, weeded around peas and beans and edged sides with spade.
Second visit planted sprouts and broccoli after weeding area. Has been rotovated but soil was like rock and really hard to dig and weed. OH has said he will rotovate again at the weekend  :)

Finishing touches to my second greenhouse, plumbed in a water butt. Weeded and watered the plot.

Planted out sunflowers and nasturtiums, plus watered quite a lot of stuff.  I have the first glimpses of summer on the plot.  The courgette fairy seems to be planning a visit and the first toms are setting outside - I've got Ferline and Crimson Crush on the plot.

Hubby & I took a wall cupboard,donated by our neighbours,& he fitted it in the tea shed for my cups & tea things. Plus took the new 2 burner gas ‘hob’ & gas cylinder, fitted that all in & had a tidy up. Then I secured the fruit cage against the marauding black birds who were intent on getting to the ripening strawberries. Weeded out yet more mares tail, then picked another 1.5 kgs of strawberries to match yesterday’s same amount. Swept up the paths where the birds have redistributed the mulches. Knocked in 3 very stout posts & put some strings up to stop the potato haulms flopping onto the main path.

Well on Saturday i started clearing another plot that has been neglected on our allotment field. Had a good day on it, will grow some leeks on it over the rest of the calendar year and see how things pan out.

Brief evening visit and weeded all of my onion bed and started weeding next to it ready for my sweetcorn.
Weeded around my peas which are flowering now but need tying to canes which will do tomorrow as they are flopping on ground  ;)
Watered sprouts and broccoli planted last visit but quite a few been eaten  :(. More broccoli sown at home but tiny at moment.
Half of french beans eaten too but sowed some more at home.
At home everything sown is growing really well.
Plot looks bit empty at moment but in next couple of weeks will have pumpkins, squash, courgettes, pak choi, kale, swede, beetroot and sweetcorn ready to plant and if broccoli keep growing then replacements for eaten plants  :)

Two visits today making the most of my days off work.
Tied up sugar snap peas onto canes and weeded around them and picked handful. First proper harvest  :)
Dug over and weeded large bed ready for pumpkins and squash.
Has been covered with rabbit manure and soil was really easy to dig and really moist so will keep spreading it all over the allotment as I pick up each load. Has kept weeds to a minimum too.
Starting to get back on top of plot after couple of weeks away.

Lots of strimming and planted out the first batch of Elena soy beans.  Also dropped off green waste from home for the compost bins.

Finished off the new polytunnel, planted kiwi plants, peppers . Aubergine, and tomatoes, all a little late going in but I'm hoping to get a good harvest.
Then gave them a good soaking with a comfrey tea, which stank out the polytunnel 🤣
