In this latest edition of The Allotment Times, we’ll see potato banking up, weeding, wood chip laying, plant protection strategies and Rocket Gardens appreciation…
Lots of banking up of the potatoes needed – they looked really abundant before but a little sparse after! Some success stories and some not so good stories. The potatoes all look very healthy, the leeks, onions, and shallots look good. The strawberries are doing well and the cabbages are just about hanging in there.
Most of the carrots got munched by the slimy creatures but we’ve now got another 20 in to compensate! I also covered a whole section of the plot with whatever I could find just to try and stop the tough little weeds growing while we were away for a week or so.
