Describing my allotment since 2011

More weeding and watering

May 18th, 2011 at 17:40

Lots more weeding and watering of what is growing. I also filled in the gaps in my broad bean row with the spare plants that you sow just in case. Only about four failed to come up so that’s not too bad in a row of 20 or so given that they are last year’s collected seed.

As always, parsnips are the bane of my life up there. I have about 1/4 of those sown coming through so have sown some more in trays and pots to try and fill in the gaps. Generally parsnips don’t like being transplanted but I’m hoping that taking a whole plug of earth and plant might help.
