Welcome to my new Allotment Blog

3rd Jan 2010

It was so cold today and the ground was frozen, so just a big clear-up and bonfire was all we could do.

Its a standard plot approx 30ft x 100ft, we have had it since 2000, so now in our 10th year.

It's so satisfying, clearing up after a good growing year, having a bonfire and returning the burnt material back into the soil.

The Archway to the right is ideal for climbing crops, such as Courgettes, Beans or Sweet Peas.

Last year I built a fruit cage (you may see it in the distance). We have Raspberries, Black & Red Currants and Strawberries in it.

This cheeky fat Robin, greets us as we arrive and as we work on the soil, he and his friends forage for any bugs we might have disturbed. We also have bird feeders so they wait for us to fill them up. Today we also spotted Thrushes & Black Birds.

I will update this Blog each weekend, with news and pics from whats been done in the week (if anything).

Thanks for reading, I look forward to reading your comments.
