As you will know if you have been following the last few posts on this blog, we have just taken the tenancy of our allotment plot a week and a half ago now. It really is a little late int he season to be starting with many crops, but we have been gifted a number of things and I have picked some others up cheap.
I thought i would report back on the progress of the crops we have got in on the allotment.
I planted some rows of onions, rather too late, but hopefully we will get a few smaller onions to crop later int he season. I planted then at the end of late week (Thursday I think so 5 days ago) and they are now starting to shoot and take hold, so that gets my hopes up for getting at least some crop from them.
The leeks we planted are also coming on well, they seem to have put on 50% in size since they went in
Raspberries are also on their way, they were choked with weeds, and when we uncovered them there was little sign of any activity in terms of fruit, however, as you can see from this picture we are going to get a fine crop.
We also seem to have got on top of the ant problem in the greenhouse the only issue now in there is one of space, too many plants, too little space. I need to get the Tomatoes in, and then find somewhere for the chilies to go.
The most critical job on my list is to un-choke the Gooseberries and Rhubarb from the weeds, they are also fruiting well and need to be given light and space.
