A quick look around the plot on a sunny February day. I’ve started to prep my beds ready for the growing season and I’ve started to sow a few veg and potatoes.
A quick look around the allotment. I’ve had some cracking harvests this year; including a 33lb marrow and another which was around 40lb. My potatoes have been lifted, although I’m not happy with the Sarpo Mira crop. I’ve also got my winter veg in and the last of the summer veg is coming to an end.
In this episode, I harvest some of my early potatoes. I’m pretty happy with them and most are a good size. Any comments or suggestions, please comment below.
June is here and in my opinion, the plot is looking fantastic. Any comments or suggestions, please comment below. Sorry about the wind in this episode
Today I show you what’s growing in the greenhouse. My early potatoes that are growing in the greenhouse are growing well. The seedlings are doing well and won’t be long until they are planted out.The early potatoes have been topped up with soil, although the main crop aren’t doing anything. I thought I killed a lot of my fruit bushes over winter, but thankfully a lot of them survived. And finally, I show you my wild life pond, which is very much a work in progress.
A very quick update showing you how I’m growing my potatoes this year. Couple of handfuls of compost mixed with a hand or two of blood, fish and bone. The potatoes are then planted on this and covered with more compost. Any comments or suggestions, leave a comment below
I’ve been looking for a greenhouse since getting the plot last year, and for Christmas, my parents bought me one. Last weekend me and my dad decided to put it up while the weather was good. (more…)
I was dropping a few things off at the plot and thought I’d take my camera with me to give you a video update. I hope everyone had a good Christmas and new year. Sorry about the quality of this video, not sure why it looks so grainy.
This year I have taken on another plot while giving up my two smaller ones (although I’ve still got these until it comes to renewal in April). It’s been hard work to get the new plot into shape and as such the older plots have suffered. However that isn’t to say I haven’t had a successful year. (more…)
