What a site!



Went to the allotment yesterday (Sat) to see which bit we can stake,we were told we can half of the plot which is good news as we want Chicken's and grow Veg,oh and Paul wants to potter around doing Ray Mears and Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall type things whatever they may be? NOT necking my chickens hopefully! (I love H.F.W he is a cool guy!)
This Allotment has a community who are coming from another site at the end of March to fix fencing which came down in the winds a while ago,this should be good as it will get the place looking a bit better,on the site there is a huge metal cabin which also needs painting,this is going to be one of the jobs that we all muck in and do very soon. Apart from the Allotment I also grow what I can in my tiny backyard,this year on the menu is...
Strawberries,Tumbling Tomatoes,Peas (Kalvedon Wonder),Peppers,Chillies,giant sunflowers (Tanya's),radish,spring onions,onions from set,carrots, and last year Sweetcorn! I know Sweetcorn! It actually grew, why I sound so suprised is,I we were making Popcorn and I said I wonder what will happen if I plant these 2 corns in a pot so we tried it,it was great they were huge,so this year I have opted for all of the above and they are all sown and in the mini greenhouse at the moment.
More soon....B-J
PS: Iv'e ordered my Wellies,now iv'e no excuse...(am I turning it to 'Compo'?)
