Allotment diary #1

Sunday 21 March 2010

We are very lucky to have an allotment – my Uncle has a huge field and his own allotment and has kindly donated each of us our own patch.

This is our first ever attempt at growing our own veg and everything will be complete experimental, saying that my Uncle has been growing veg for 10 years and knows what grows best there so he is our allotment mentor 🙂

We may have been a little over ambitious but so far we have planted the following;

Lettuce
Brussels
White Onions
Red Onions
Parsnips
Beetroot
Purple Carrots
Spinach

First job to prepare the bed and dig out the weeds..

Then the fun part – sowing the seeds…

Our allotment :)
