The working out at the extended plot is in the heights…. planting, watering and weeding…. as a saying “Nothing sow nothing gain”…. so here I am ready for the ball rolling…..

We still have not much rain during this month….. so watering is essential… elbow grease is needed….

Plot 25B take over – Year 3

25th March 2010 ….

25B

One day in March, the plotter of 25B suddenly evicted all their plotting equipments from the shed, it just looked so untidy so I made a call to ask what has happened.  The answer was they gave up because of ill health. I made a call to the warden and took over the task to transform this half plot which connected to mine…..

Here are the images of the before ……

Seedlings

Lot of seedlings has been germinated and growing steady …. waiting for the right moments to plant out….

Spring seeds

Easter season – Week 7 – Year 3

End week of March 2010

Here comes the busy Easter Festival… I said, as it is really a celebration of the  reborn, relive and refresh for all…. as a church goer and believer, this is another big time besides Christmas… busy both in mind and physical….

My favourite hymn at this time of the year… Now the Green Blade Rises… great lyrics and soothing hopeful tune….

Footpath

Noted that new grasses has appeared in the newly dug footpath by JCB, at last we shall walk on balance steps in the coming years ….

Footpath

Potato

We decided to plant in the First Early potatoes in Bed 4 and Bed 6…. traditional saying that plant in potato around Easter time and gradually plant in First Early, Second Early and then Main Crops…. My First Early are Arran Pilot, Foremost and Pentland Javelin and I have only limited space to plant in this year’s First Early potatoes… as I am well advised not to grow potatoes in the same spot in concession at least 2 years… rotation… rotation and rotation…..
