Well the weather forecast was correct and the sun came out so a perfect day to visit the Allotment.
The Onions I planted out last year have survived the winter so far.
White 3 rows to the left, Reds 3 rows to the right, about 30 of each.
The Leeks I planted last year, early ones on the left, late ones on the right, have also survived the winter well.
We have harvested some of the early ones for Leek & Potato soup and were lovely.
The late ones will mature later this year for a successive crop.
As I said the sun was shining, after a frosty start and the ground was still quite hard in places, so all I could do was do a spot of weeding.
The Asparagus I planted out in April last year, was in need of a good weeding and looks a lot better for it.
I had to be careful with my weeding fork as Asparagus roots are fragile and don't like to be disturbed, we haven't had a crop yet so didn't want to risk damaging the roots.
I also planned for the next few jobs that need doing.
In other news:
The 1st of my potato order arrived this week.
The Charlotte (2nd early) are 'chitting' now in egg trays, in a cool but bright place.
The rest are expected to arrive within the next few weeks.
Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
