Still cold and wet, with snow showers occasionally.
Had another trip to the allotment with Heather and Mary. I tried to do a bit of digging, but it was too wet really. Contented myself with some weeding of the raspberry bushes.
I also finally got around to measuring the plot, 20ft by 94ft. I used GrowVeg.com, who have a rather excellent planning tool. I plotted out my plot as accurately as I could. Then chose my which veg was going where, based on crop rotation from last year. The GrowVeg planner should help with this for next year as I think it helps with the crop rotation planning.
It also provides a planting/harvesting calendar based on your plants. I need to go through this and work out a monthly task list.
GrowVeg is £15 a year, I’m going to look at it a bit more, before I commit, but I think it might be worth it.
I’ve got my seed potatoes in egg boxes in the porch chitting away. Hopefully, weather permitting, be ready to plant the earlies in a couple of weeks.
Let’s hope for some drier weather.
