Still here, still digging.

Well it’s been over 2 years since my last allotment blog post. However, the allotment is still going.

2014 is going well, the weather has been good and everything is growing well. I did get off to a bit of a late start with the sowing and planting. I was holding back because of the threatened late frost, which never appeared.

The soft fruit is doing well, we’ve had around 4 kilos of raspberries and probably the same of strawberries, which have been very tasty and my wife has also made lots of jam.

I picked about a kilo of gooseberries but unfortunately they burned during the jam making.
