Today I spent five hours at the allotment and got loads done. Being a root day in the biodynamic cycle in went the onions and the carrots.
I also harvested the first crop of rhubarb this year. Rhubarb and custard it is then!
|I managed to straighten the final edge and made the side bed about 30cm wider in places.|
|I then planted out my Tree onions and the first lot of carrots and covered them in mesh to stop the carrot fly. I also popped in some home harvested radish seed as a cash crop between the tree onions and the potatoes.|
|The flax seed has germinated!!! I have never grown this before so it should be interesting to see how it grows.|
|I then planted my onions sets and onions sowed this year. Just as well we like onions! They did well last year so fingers crossed for the same again this year.|
|My spring cabbages are making a good recovery from being eaten by slugs in the autumn and my leeks are about to be picked.|
