  3. Looking good, Sue - nice and neat and tidy. Full of potential. I love this time of year; there is so much to look forward to! Have you seen many white butterflies yet?

    1. Not many butterflies at all Yet Mark. The gales won't be their favourite weather - maybe the sun will bring them out.

  4. The peas are doing well. I've planted some mange tout out but they've been a bit ravaged by the wind so I'm not sure if they'll come to anything. I've held off getting my squash out, mainly because the bed isn't ready yet, nearly there now, but I think it's just as well really or else they'd have been mangled too. Your plot's looking great.

  7. Wonderful, absolutely wonderful. You've clearly been working hard, everything looks so neat and so healthy. I'm having a few disasters this year, so it's nice to see how it should be done. My turnips have something in the root, some of the garlic is dying and the strawberries are on their last legs, no idea why. Either dodgy soil (I suspect I have quite a bit of that at home from buying tainted soil improvers - it's the only explanation I can think of for things going yellow and stopping growth as soon as they are planted out) or maybe a virus - I used runners from the plot. All very frustrating.

    1. Buying compost and manures is a lottery now CJ, I guess that you have tried feeding, Our problems at the moment are weather and mollusc related.

  8. It's looking like a hive of industry and I'm most envious of the structure in the background of the first photo Sue.

  11. I have always said that allotment owners or people with large vegetable gardens are the last true growers. Commercial growers will only grow what potentially will make them a profit so the crop has to be suitable for the growing conditions available to them. Amateur growers are the only ones who are prepared to take risks and experiment.
