Lovely afternoon spent on the plot. Planted out a row of peas and another row of broad beans. All the parsnips are out and I’ve sown a row of Autumn King carrots.

Seedlings 2017. Hopefully that’s it for the cold nights now. My little chaps survived the freezing temperatures. I’m very happy that my parsnips germinated and I now have the first lot in the ground. Out of all the aubergine seeds I sowed only one came up to say hi, so I’ll have to take extra care. I’ve got the day off on Sunday and it’s going to be a full allotment day.

A productive sunny day sowing seeds at the plot. I’m using some bright colourful pots to brighten the place up. Here is a list of what I’ve sown today;
Cauliflower
Purple sprouting broccoli
Sweet peppers
Courgette
Squash
Peas
Oregano
Aubergine
Beef tomato
Plum tomato
Cucumber
Sunflowers- 2 varieties

I was brutal with some of my parsnip pots and tipped them out to see if the seed has germinated…. and guess what they have. So fingers crossed I’ll have some tasty parsnips to see me through autumn and winter.

I also gave my bench a quick coat of green paint and tidied the shed…AGAIN.

Berwick Upon Tweed Allotments. I must say these are the prettiest allotments I have seen so far on my adventures. I first came across them a couple of years ago when me and my dad visited Berwick for a walking trip. Seeing them in the spring was great and the soil looks amazing. A lot of hard work has gone into these plots and I’m sure there will be some super tasty fruit and veg.

Woooo I’ve been given a greenhouse. One of the other plot holders had one in his garden at home and wanted rid of it. We actually carried it through the village- that was something I never thought I’d do. We are going to finish it off on Sunday ready for me to plant in on Monday/Tuesday next week. I’ve taken up two of my 4ft square beds to make room for it. Can’t wait to grow some tomatoes. Planted the first row of broad beans and dug over some more beds. It’s been a really productive week down at the plot, we have managed to give it a good sort out all ready to go.
