It is always the case – weeks of not much to do over winter then all of a sudden – too much!
A gorgeous day and a real delight to be outside. First and urgent job today was watering. The greenhouse is like a sauna at the moment so everything in there needs doing regularly but the outside beds needed a lot today too.
We have onions, broad beans, peas, tomatoes, potatoes, runner beans, cucumbers and lettuces all doing really well at the moment. Our carrots have been a bit of a non starter this year for some reason so we may have to re-think where they are.
Anyway, onto today. Imogen and her group cleared a bed for our Chard – Bright Lights, inspired by the beautiful ones growing on the Observer allotment. Amanda’s group took charge of the pumpkins – two different varieties: Hundredweight and Atlantic Giant and my group got the courgettes in – F1 Defender.
The weeds seemed to have shot up over the Easter holidays too so plenty of work there. Our wormeries needed a clean out too so member from Eco committee took all the lovely compost out which we used in the beds we planted today.
