Got to the plot, stepped out of the car, the heavens opened. Checked the polytunnel was intact and then fled home!

Moved one of my chopped water barrel containers to a better location and then sowed up some broad beans in  pots in the tunnel.
The variety were Syrian Black broad beans provided in the 2018 seed circle by Whitehill, so I'll shamelessly take this opportunity to plug this years seed circle, link below come and join the Dark Side! :D

5 rows of peas went in today straight into the ground, with the kids doing around half of them - their first visit this year! So around 300 peas on, 200 Early Onward (never tried before) and 100 or so unknown Spanish ones I've had I think for 3-4 years now. I soaked them all last night, all the Early Onward (fresh seeds) sunk to the bottom, my spanish ones about 1/3 flotated with the rest sinking. I was going to do an experiment and sow the row half and half to see what happened, but as I turned out I had more than I thought so planted all the ones that sunk. I might try something with the 'floaters' tomorrow to see if ones that float are less likely to come up.

Went to the plot around the corner to plant out broad beans and it started to rain so went home and sowed lettuce, coriander, radish and spring onions in soil blocks in a tray. They'll go straight out into a cold frame as soon as they show their heads.

I went to the plot, moved a massive pile of rubbish and built a compost bin. The garlic and onions are coming on strong.

I've been putting the germinated beans outside as they show their heads this week along with lettuce and salad under cover.

Had a couple of hours free this morning. Weeded a couple of beds (still more to do) and added a few more loads of woodchips to the paths.

 we usually have a day of Thursdays we go to our local village market today bacon rolls and buy our home made cakes and a visit to our local garden centre to see what there bought back from the auctions many plants at the rite price needless to say my other half has field day

we have been very busy this week replacing our potting shed roof also sowing seed in the greenhouse there's plenty to do hopefully it will drying up so we can start down the allotments next week we went down the allotment last week to get some bushes out to re-plant on our friends farm good job he took his mini digger to get them out because the ground was still very wet and when we re-planed them in his field it to was like planting a paddy field

so its back to normal garden duties tomorrow greenhouse seed sowing also on the list is replacing the poly tunnel sheet together with new staging replacing the doors as a gardener you know there's always something to do on the allotments and  gardens

I got hold of some unwanted second hand guttering today. I have a 45 gallon drum doing nothing so will fit the guttering to the potting shed and start properly harvesting rainwater this year.

I turned up at the plot hoping to weed and compost the beds but I spotted that site's water supply was back on so  I cleaned the outside of the polytunnel with the hosepipe and a brush.
