The allotment is making wonderful progress~~I have now planted several types of Brassica plants. We have Brussell Sprouts, Kale, Purple Sprouting Broccolli, and Cabbages in two of the beds, and I have also sown some Turnip seeds. I used to grow Turnips a long time ago with reasonable success and having received a free packet of seeds with a magazine I purchased, I have decided to try growing them again.
The soft fruit is growing very well and my strawberries are covered in flowers with the fruit setting very nicely. The Loganberry bushes are covered in flowers and I should get a nice heavy crop of those as well,
All of the Potato plants have pushed their way through the soil, they are growing well, with very nice fresh healthy looking green leaves on display.
The weather has improved and the tender vegetables that need the warmth to germinate and survive are beginning to respond, my Runner Beans are just showing in some places under the wigwams and I have some spare plants growing in pots.
All good news and good eating to look forward to~~~
The geraniums and the sweet peas in the pots at the front of the house are coming on and I have given them a good feed to promote some healthy growth.
Sadly, as expected, our beautiful Tree Peony has now finished flowering and is shedding large pink petals all over our lawn at the back, Everything has a cycle of growth and the forget-me-nots are also looking tired and past their best.
