Week 52 – Year 2 (Final week of 2nd Year)

1st February – 8th February 2010

My second year of Allotment has reached the day on the eighth of February, the very day when I took over the plot on the 8th February 2008.

Vegetplotlot… my allotment journals has reached the second year end too…. really time flies while you are in depth of it….

Conclusion of my second year allotmenting was real fun plus added on great experiences on planting…. the bonus is the techno on record this project and got myself learning, reading and seeing more… “throw a stone and caught more  than 2 birds”….

Fox at the Plot

One of the bird that I caught is to meet the real wild life; the chance that I can meet a relaxing fox having his sun bathing is absolutely impossible until I have a allotment and meet this wild visitor every so often over there….

Foxes are clever, they know when is the best time to pick up all these free dose of Vitamin C from the winter sunshine….

Compost Bin

While I was at the plot with the lovely weather, I have cleared up the last compost bin and spread out the rich composted stuff around the plot… feeds for the earthworms….

Noticed the severe weather this year still have not affected much of the Swiss Chard, new leaves still shooting out…..

25th January – 31st January 2010

Not too long ago we were greeting with Happy New Year, and here we are the last week of the first month….. whatever iPhone 3G is the new gadget… a virtual Time gadget is fine for me…

Although it is cold, the temperature somehow has climb up above freezing figure… even has some sunshine… while I was emptying the compost material to the bin at the plot, I have noticed the allotment foxes have a good time there too…

Jerusalem Artichoke

Dug out some Jerusalem Artichoke at my front bed, they are still edible even after the big freeze… even sweeter…
