April 2011

Sorry, didn't realise that I hadn't blogged since February :-)
Its now a busy time on the allotment. We have planted our potatoes and onions. At the weekend we got our carrots, beetroot, spinach, strawberries, turnip and swede planted.
We have cabbages, cauliflower and broccoli started in seed trays. So its all go.

Now we are planning which flowers to plant. Last year marigolds and sweet peas were really successful so they will go in again but I think we will try sunflowers along the fence at the path (see if we can compete with Joyce's beautiful display of pink flowers on the main path last year) and maybe some lavaterra and nasturtiums for the back fence.

Our new site is progressing (see photos on our website) and is still on schedule to open in Spring - guess that stretches to May but let's hope its soon.
