Well the weather forecast was correct, for a change, was warmer and dry too, so an ideal day to plant my 2nd early Potatoes 'Charlotte' I also put an extra row of 'Rocket' in too (1st early).
Usual spacing 12" apart in rows 24" between.
That just leaves the 'Markies' main crop to plant in about 2 weeks time.
Other jobs done today:
Weeded the patch set aside for Peas & Beans, will manure & Rotovate soon too.
Checked the Rhubarb, which has suffered from thefts in past years, but looking healthy and untouched too :)
Also had a Bonfire, some have told me that Bonfires are not allowed on their Allotments, cant understand why as the Pot Ash produced from a bonfire fueled by wood & dry weeds etc is a perfect & free soil improver.
I don't think I would like an Allotment on a site that bans Bonfires :(
The cheeky four, Hetty, Betty, Peggy & Maud are doing well, looking so much better only 2.5 weeks since release.
Here you can see them polishing off a favorite treat, Super Mix Corn from the Small Holder range of feeds.
They really love this & we try to give them a handful daily if poss.
Thanks for reading/returning, Ian
