Describing my allotment since 2011

Another area prepared

Added another piece of open prepared ground to the small part currently containing potatoes. I had had a carpet down since last autumn and took that up revealing a nicely cleared area of earth. It wasn’t totally cleared as I found while forking it over but the thistle roots are easy to spot and filled up several buckets.

Still, it looks good and the edging is neat and immediately I sowed lettuce and radish. The potatoes are all doing rather well with the second earlies about a foot above the soil now and the main crop just poking their way through.
