Spring is just around the corner but yet February can still be one of the coldest months of the year. If the weather permits you can start some early sowing or even plant outside. However, if the conditions aren’t right, delay your sowing until the weather warms up a little.
In this video, I show you my leek barrier that I’ve put up to try and stop the wind damaging my leeks. I dig over the potato beds ready for spring and I also find a few hidden gems in the strawberry bed.
In this episode I show you my cold frame and make a start filling it with horse manure. Also I pick some more sprouts for tea and give them a feed with a high nitrogen feed. I also harvest some carrots.
Only a quick update today. Last weekend me and my dad spent Saturday and Sunday down the allotment building a new cold frame. It took a day and a bit to put together and the best bit, all the materials were recycled. So without further ado, I present to you the new cold frame.
