A pleasant day on the Allotment.
On Thursday, we particularly enjoyed the usual mid-February warm spell and it was satisfying to get the first planting done. Ian had sown broadbeans in mid-December, so it was time to get the young plants in the ground. The variety is Sutton which doesn’t grow quite as tall so should stand up better to the wind.
And we finally managed to start on repairing the willow windbreak!
A date for your diary – SUNDAY 24 FEBRUARY 11am – 2pm. There will be a Potato Day held onsite at Bridgend Allotments. Potatoes, garlic, onion and shallot sets on sale.
Jobs for next week
- Continue with the windbreak repairs
- Check all fruit labels are in place
