27th April – 3rd May 2009
Wet wet wet this week to start with……
The beginning of a new month with promising a month of growth in agricultural products…. the rain do a lot of good to the ground for the growth…
Highlights for the week:
Bee plant… my name to it as it does attract a lot of bees and flying insects, the orchid like mini flowers are most beautiful and attractive, I transplant them from home to the allotment and it seems growing fine there.. and this is the second year there and it has a lot of new shoots coming up… looks like a promise….
My salad corner, seedling bed, beetroot, parsnips and Jerusalem artichoke plants are thriving, especially the Jerusalem Artichokes where I have left some roots from last year and they have new one shooting up, so I have the gold dust for this year again…..
The report on the potato growth is OK, they have been in the ground 4 weeks old now, the first early type are shooting up fine and the main crops has showing lives too, Bernard (my JCB) has been busy earthling up with 2 x 100 litres multi composts around them …..
The most exciting thing in allotment is the harvest picking, there are a lot from my plot even as early as in the year… I have not waste all my effort and they are so yummy to taste…
