As the soil starts to warm up start sowing some hardy seeds. This is probably the busiest time for the allotment gardener and I am planning on taking a few photos this weekend of my current planting activities at which point I will update the website. Continue reading “March – Time to get busy!”
Just thought we would give a quick hello to everyone on here and to introduce ourselves, we are the new proud owners of plot 13B (the ever so slightly overgrown (it has a bramble bush the size of a bus on it ha ha :o) ) on the six bells site. We are Jake, Michelle and Baby Harriett who is one and we are sure will love growing sunflower and making mud pies later on. We will post up pictures as we transform the site but we have a lot of back breaking digging and clearing to do before we get growing.
There will be a follow-up meeting 7.30pm on Tuesday 11th March in the Long Kiln Room at The Maltings. This meeting will be primarily a plenary session for all members of the Working Groups for the FLFI.
It never ceases to amaze me just how much the garden changes over the course of the year. This is the first year on our plot at the Shepherd and Flock site and similarly it’s changed drastically since we first got on it in April. I thought I would upload a series of photos taken from roughly the same spot over the course of a year to show the ever changing seasons that I think we’re lucky to experience in the UK.
