A week of self isolating

But first, just look at the Stockbridge Arrow Rhubarb, a slightly later variety, won't be long now, maybe just a week or two before this years first Rhubarb Crumble. 
Anyway, back to this weeks CV isolation, I got busy making a new raised bed for Asparagus and a new Strawberry planter/box. 
See below for the finished area.
The good weather has helped the Apple Trees, they are covered in buds and the blossom is waiting to pop out. 

The Frog Spawn in the pond is still there, no sign of our Frogs though.
Jo dug up some Leeks so its Leek & Potato soup for lunch. 
Very nice it was too with home-made Cheese & Chive scones, Chives from the allotment.

The new Asparagus bed is partly filled, we returned today (Saturday) to top it up with manure & top soil, the Strawberry box is to the left, over 7ft long, 12" wide, 6"deep and I extended the patio by 3ft.
Even this Covid-19 virus can't keep us away from our Allotment a 10 min walk away from home, its counted as our once a day exercise and 5 hours isolation, just me & Jo!

Plus our neighbors a good 2 mtrs away over the fence. 

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo.
