New half-plot
« on: June 20, 2020, 10:49 »
In addition to my old plot, I took on a new but neglected half-plot last year.  I spent all 2019 clearing away the weeds, including some tenacious mares' tail. and putting in raised beds filled with a native soil/compost/manure mix.  So far the new bit looks good but, in conversation with a neighbouring plot holder, I heard that white rot has badly affected his onions.  Fearing the worst I lifted a few and sure enough, it's there but not to any great extent.  It's a little early for lifting onions but I would rather have smaller and so far unaffected bulbs than full-sized and rotten ones so tomorrow they are all coming up.  Anway, it's no use crying over spilt milk so next year I will be giving the onion beds a dusting of garlic powder before planting.  This year I will  soon have a usable bed which I don't want to waste and wondered if I should put in some broccoli or sprouts if I can get some decent plug plants.

Any other ideas?

What else do you like to eat and that you've not got enough of yet?  :D
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
