Plot 32

Friday, December 29, 2006


Updated to the all-new Blogger yesterday, which gave me a few heart-stopping moments when I thought (more than once) that I'd lost the Blog. Not, at this stage, entirely sure what the benefits are!
Have only made it to the Plot a couple of times in the last fortnight, principally because of the rain. Alarmed to see that the garlic is still not through, despite the cold spell we had.
Gardening related pressies - "Allotted Time" by Robin Shelton, raised bed kit by Link-a-Bord (which I think I'm going to use for my asparagus bed), vouchers from Marshalls Seeds and an electronic labeller. Thanks everyone!

Dogged digging ...

... a phrase I borrowed from someone else but I'm not sure who. Not at the Plot last weekend (too wet) but there the weekend before and today. Garlic not yet through - I'm starting to worry that I planted it too deep (unlikely) or that it's been so wet it's all rotted off. Will have to wait and see.
Still clearing parts of the Plot. Too wet at the far end, so concentrated on the near end - where the beans and peas will go. The weeds still seem to be growing but most are now annuals apart from a section of taprooted dandelions (?) and patches of couch grass.
The constant wet weather's a curse. Most of my fellow Plotholders seem to have cleared their plots and put them to bed - saw only one other soul in 3 hours.
Will post a list of the seeds I've bought shortly ...
