13th April – 19th April 2009
Suppose raining most of the week, but the rain cloud must have slip 1 degree further away and we have dry sunny beautiful Spring days for the week….
Lots of activities at the plot… transplanting, JCB project, seeds sowing and harvesting…. and some highlight of the season….
Sowed some more seeds and they are runner beans, climbing beans and mousy squashes, I soaked them overnight before sowed in pots later replant them at the plot…
New Plants to the plot
Put some flower plants at strategic areas where companion planting flourish… David from plot 23B gave me some of his germinated onion seedlings and I have popped them in the plot…. during the week I have planted in my germinated Lettuce, Salad Rockets and beetroot… also planted in the main crops potatoes Desiree…..
Harvest – Radish
Well, my best harvest at this time is Radish, they look so pretty like Ruby jewel on the ground, and the new season always taste better…. young, crunchy, fresh, sweet and lush….
Projects – Painting & Patio
During the holidays both my favourite handy men (JCB) started paving a small patio in front of my wooden sheds plus put a coat of paint to the shed…. aren’t they deserve well fed?!….
Highlights – Slow worms, Apple Blossom, Hoops Pipe and Bees
There are lots of highlights when new season just began and different activates and happening at the allotment…. such as Slow worms are stirring around after hyphenated from the winter months…. thank you Bill keeping the compost bin nice and warm special for the slow worms…
Bees are busy doing their pollinating job….
The blooming of the apple tree is a delightful view for all….
Lots of Hoops Pipe erected around at the allotment, a genius idea for keeping the berries for human consume instead of birdies…..
