11 May 2024 on the Allotment

As with the farmers and all other allotmenteers, we suffered a pretty appalling winter, too wet, too cold, no warmth. Just picture s field of mud.

We have resown all the failures and so start the spring with new hopes.

The prime performers so far are beetroot and celeriac, but none of the Mediterranean stuff.

Our polytunel we hope will be our saviour for the tomatoes and peppers are doing well as are cucumbers. Outdoors our beans may be OK.

Colleagues are experimenting with small Growhouses in their greenhouses so we will soon be trying one.
