The Mound in Park Lane…Update.

A while ago I mentioned that Andy, my allotment neighbour and I had been given a new plot but the downside to the plot was that it came with a huge mound of earth and other unmentionable items thrown in for good measure.

This is how the plot looked when we took it on……

The following pictures below show the work in progress……

And this is how it looks today all planted up with various brassicas that include purple sprouting broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflowers, broccoli and a giant variety cabbages….!!

It has been very hard work clearing the land and building the cage, but it was all worth it in the end.  To be honest, most of the building work was completed by Andy and my husband.  My speciality lies with the planting and of course diggin’!

Happy diggin’

    It looks great, the cage is amazing. I planted a load of seeds at the beginning of the year and none came up 😦 I ended up buying lots of little nursery seedlings.

    I re dug over the veg plot and planted the seedling, to my horror and amazement, some of the original seeds have started to germinate. I now have mixed veg growing together. Potatoes with onions, lettuce and peas, it is starting to look surreal with the red poppies that spring up everywhere. I don’t have the heart to pull up pretty poppies. barking mad
