|Mint and chives. I cleared the bit to the left of this bed today and sowed dill there. Left some space for both parsley and coriander seedlings growing in the greenhouse at the moment.|
The area around the hut/greenhouse is a mess and will be done slowly during the summer. I also have hopes up to erect a new polytunnel, quite similar in size and design to my last one.
On one side my neighbours have a great big building full of racing pigeons. They get their exercise over the gardens and it is a very special sound when a flock of them flies just overhead. They don't eat from the allotments as they are well fed. It is their wild cousins, who tend to decimate any kales they can spot.They coo very cosily while I am gardening.
|If you strain your eyes you might see the long thin green asparagus. They are one-year old crowns, so still far away from being eaten. Behind them are my baby strawberry plants. The building in the background is the pigeon coop.|
This is our pea fence. The black fence was on the allotment, but was not built with much timber, so we bought some posts and horizontals. I am so excited by this one!
|You can see a single globe artichoke on the right against the black fence. I think I have eight plants altogether.|
Well done if you read all the way here. I write these postings very much for myself to remember what I have done and when. How is your garden growing? Leave a link if you have pictures, it would be lovely to see!
