18th May – 24th May 2009
A busy week at the allotment and lots of happening……
My JCB + Handy Man
After a year having the allotment we decided to repair some of the rows edges at my plot, and here comes my humanoid JCB plus handy man…. measure and saw to it….
Three sister planting
Here is the link for how to do the Three Sister planting, in fact try Google it, there are more informs of this…. here I have tried at my plot to grow the corns, beans and squashes together. this is my first trial and my version of it, so watch this tiny space…..
Highlights of the week
The early sown over the winter ones are fruiting nicely and looking forward to have some to taste next week. The second crops are catching up and they are taller and start having baby beans… By the way I have pinched most of the tops of the board beans plants in my stir fry dinner, they are the most delicacy, the best of all green veggie…..
I have left some Jerusalem Artichoke roots from last year’s harvest in the ground, and I have dug in lots of goodies in the area in late winter, and here they are…. the back to live of “gold dust”.
Peas & Mangetouts
I saw that there are flower buds and flowers in my Early peas and Mangetouts plants and they are taller than my supported cages, that means I shall have the peas feast soon….. some said that when the peas are ready to pick, is the time to harvest the first early of potatoes too…
Loads of potato flower buds and some starts blooming too….
After the success of the “Spring Hero”, I decided to go for the summer variety “Winnigstat” at this time of the year and hope for some good eating later on…..
Salad leaves & Lettuce
Among all the cabbage, beans, peas and potatoes, here comes the salad leaves of Pak Choi, Lettuce, Mizuna leaves… they are yummy…
After the taste of the home grown spring onion, this is a must to repeat growing, so I get another pack of spring onion seeds and sow them in between rows of veggie…
I could not waste all the effort to grow all these veggie, they are have to be appreciated by putting into the dinner plate to achieve their highest honour…..
Next week is half term holiday, busy time suppose ….
