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’!
You (and your support team) have done a great job with this plot Debb.
Thanks Jean. The hard work really paid off. The plot is 3/4 planted now. Looking forward to a great harvest. X
Wow! That looks awesome!! Great job you!!
Why thank you kind lady x
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
I understand where you are coming from. Last year I missed loads of potatoes when I dug them up and in the bed that has my onions and carrots growing for companion planting, there are potato shoots sprouting up everywhere! I’m going to leave them be and see what happens. I call it my instant stew bed! LOL. x
Stew bed, brill.
Debb. An instant stew bed – you must patent the idea before somebody else does !!
Ha ha. I must remember that one! Works well for me if they all grow ok. Debb
