These babies are going out today. It’s a brilliant day to get loads of work done at my plot. I wonder if Mark is going to bring me some dinner?

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.

Woooooooo ? finally after three years of waiting I now have a lovely greenhouse. Can’t wait to get down there tomorrow to sow some more seeds.

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.

Another wonderful day spent at the allotment. Thank you to my mum for helping me out with all the little time consuming tasks. We got quite a lot done. I’ve sown my first beetroot seeds, I’m trying a new variety this year- Moulin Rouge. This afternoon I dug over a section of the legumes bed ready for the first batch of broad beans to go in tomorrow. My mum is going to paint the three wooden planters in the morning so that we can get them prepped ready for planting.

Wooooo another day down at the allotment. Got so much done today. Covered more ground, planted out a black currant and blackberry and had another tidy up.
