Welcome to Plot 42

Just me and my allotment.

Cauliflower and check plot

Went to the allotment straight from works yesterday to try and do a little bit,everything was fine from the night before wind and rain. Well apart from the covering on the strawberries which had blow of in bits,so I replaced it with some leafs that had been dropped off. After the last few weeks I’ve been checking the odd cauliflower to see if we had any growth,the ones that i checked were a little small so I never checked the other ones. So I decided to check the other ones and we had some large ones,well about 5 to 6 inches wide so quite chuffed in the size if them. Just have to harvest them them and get them eaten and frozen for later on in the year,don’t think I have a big enough freezer to store them all in any way.




Been Busy

Not blogged for a little while been a little busy at work but i have been to the allotment a few times, but not had chance to update my blog. I have sowed a few more things this week some in the greenhouse and some straight into the ground, sowed cauliflower into pots and swede straight into the ground. I have planted my 2nd row of Beetroot which i have been growing in trays, the sweetcorn has started to come through which i sowed a couple of weeks ago. I have done some more weeding and spread out the lettuce which is growing nicely, also planted some more lettuce and radish and put out my Dwarf French beans i know its early but they getting to big for the greenhouse.
Also planted Red Cabbage – Sprouts – Turnips in the ground which have been growing in the greenhouse not to sure if i have enough of them growing.
