Lovely weather today, not too hot & yesterdays wind had dropped too. So a busy time ahead,
This photo shows our Pea & Bean patch, this years Pea crop has been great especially the Petit Pois, harvesting every day now.
The frame in the foreground contains Curly Kale & Mini Cauliflowers.
Main job today was to dig up some more Charlotte Potatoes, to release extra space for more crops as the potatoes had done their stuff loosening the soil, it's ideal for Carrots.
So two rows of Carrots have been sown, under fleece, as a barrier against root fly and also some Leeks (on right).
Here's a tip:
You can plant most things after potatoes except Brassicas (Cabbage etc).
Also had to drastically cut back one of the Black Currant bushes, as it had developed 'Big Bud' disease. But removing it has given the Red Currants more space & in less shadow so should ripen sooner.
We have harvested over 7lb of Black Currants from the remaining two bushes, now made into Jam.
Also weeded the Raspberries to aid ripening.
So this is today's haul:
Mange Tout & Petit Pois Peas
Charlotte Potatoes (out of shot) & Flowers too.
So it has been a busy but satisfying day on the plot, lots done and lots harvested.
There is still lots more to come too, I love our Allotment.
Thanks for reading/returning next up-date real soon, so watch this space.
