I am getting worried because things seem to be under control and I keep thinking that I have missed something!
Since my last post I have have finalised my planting schedule and have started a few crops in the greenhouse.
I have only have about 1/3 of the plot left to dig. Areas which have not been dug are still under the black matting.
On 27 January I seeded 30 broad bean plants. These have been in the green house for 4 weeks and are all doing well.
Last weekend I finished a small raised bed and put in 70 shallots.
This weekend (25th Feb) I have prepared another bed and put in 12 Jerusalem Artichokes tubers. I have never grown these before so I have given them small plot in between the rhubarb and onions.
I have also seeded the following in the greenhouse:
Tom Thumb lettuce
The next few weeks
This is roughly what I am aiming to do over the next few weeks, I have found it best not to make too big a plan for the next 8 weeks as I find I end up changing my mind:
03-Mar - Seed Parsnip/Leeks /Peas/Radish/Beetroot in the greenhouse
10-Mar - Nothing
17-Mar - Seed Parsnip/Leeks /Peas/Radish/Beetroot & Plant out (Jan) Broad Beans
24-Mar - Plant Early Spuds
31-Mar - Seed Parsnip/Leeks /Peas/Radish/Beetroot
Also I have started to work on the other half of the allotment - this is quite overgrown but I have started to clear this in the hope that I could get some stuff in later in the year.
