Bank Holiday Monday

Spent a few extra hours today, on this extended Bank Holiday weekend, at the Allotment. 

In this raised bed we have Radish, Lettuce & a few rows of Spring Onions, in the back (behind the criss/cross sticks) we have some Peas growing up the netting.
We mixed in the last of the well rotted manure in this raised bed & made 3 ridges, covered it with black mulch fabric. 
Then planted Strawberry runners 'Elstanta' and 'Alice' that we have growing elsewhere on the plot.
In this raised bed, it was an overgrown herb bed, we did the same as above but in here we planted Strawberry 'Honeoye' a new one we are trying for the first time. 
So now we have an extra 34 Strawberry plants!

The sunken pot has Mint in it, the pot stops it spreading everywhere.
Can't believe how fast the Rhubarb is growing, on Saturday the leaves were just uncurling, today we have stalks and more buds are popping up all over this raised bed.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
