More planting done

Just a quick mid week Blog, visited the Allotment on this very sunny day, just for a couple of hours due to other commitments.

But managed to do quite alot:

We planted 2 rows of Beetroot in the raised bed next to the greenhouse which is still waiting to be filled with Tomatoes & Peppers, but haven't managed to move it back since the storms of Jan/Feb, when it moved 6" !

Also managed to plant out Sweet Peas on the 2 obelisks and 'Onward' Peas on the frame in the middle.

A good tip: cut a piece of cardboard to fit the base of your frames, weigh it down with a brick or similar, this will save you from weeding the centre which is hard to reach when everything grows.

The weekend weather looks good too, so expect an Easter Blog :)
Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
