New Year, New Tidiness

If this blog is to work as a means of reminding me what I've done and whether it works, I better write things a bit more frequently in 2008.

So, today, we went down the allotment and:
  • dug 1 row and removed buckets of weed roots;
  • SomeBeans dug up some more of the path sections and raked up stems and rubbish

I planted 3 rows of brad bean 'Aquadulce Claudia' - a bit late; I should have planted them in November but didn't. Most of two rows are covered by cloche - it will be interesting to see if they grow faster, or if any grow at all, rather than just rotting in the cold wet soil of January. It looks quite tidy!

We have a small head of Romanesco developing on the half plot. The black tuscan kale is still quite tiny but should be harvestable soon. The 'Bleu de Solaise' leeks are thickening up, and the shallots and elephant garlic are sprouting.
