11 May – 18 May
A sad week of what happened in China, felt very heavy, made you see that nature always got the upper hand. Please help what you can, there are many venues waiting for everyone’s generous help, you see this earthquake affected area is the same size as the whole Europe, real big disaster. My thanks for the Red Cross to pass our donation to help the needed…..our prayers are with all the people over there…..
With sunny temperature 24 °C warming up, basically watering become a major task, Bernard & I popped up to the plot either in the morning or evening mainly for this purpose.
My mail ordered comfrey plants has arrived, looks a bit pale and lanky, I’ll put them in pots to make sure they’ll grow before put them into the ground.
Weeds are flourishing as all vegetable growing, in nature’s eye they are all the same but not us human, we eat vegetable not weeds, so the battle is on, either vegetable win or weeds win…..here is my weapons use in this battlefield…..
Planting for this week
This week new vegetable put in the ground are butternut squash, courgette (green and yellow), pumpkin, celery and turnips…..
Vegetables shown this week
Carrot seeds has germinated, radish ripping, lattice looking greener, both potatoes in ground and in bags are floursing. At the front row there are some lovage appearing from the ground and it seems growing fine and I think I shall keep it. Generally the plot looks healthy…
Produces of the week
Cauliflower given by Janet @ ploy 6, that is so deliciously fresh and has made a meal ‘Cauliflower Delight’
Bits & Pieces
I was debating to use miscellaneous as the title but this one won at the end for the funny reason…. I have mail ordered a ladybird house from RSPB for the allotment, hoping the ladybirds will settle there and give me a hand to control aphids…..
