I can’t believe I’ve only had my allotment for seven weeks! I am staggered by how much I’ve achieved already. In fact, almost every spot of earth is full right now!
To have gone from this patch of bare earth to a productive plot in that time just goes to show what you can achieve when you put your mind to it (and an awful lot of elbow grease too!)
I’m trying out all sorts of things, fruits, vegetables, salads, flowers, it’s all going on! I should be able to actually eat something within the next week, all I’ve had so far was a radish the size of a five pence piece when I was thinning them out!
I got a little carried away with my shed, but it’s a lovely space, Darcy has a little bed in there so he can hang out and supervise and I put tiles down on the floor so it’s always cool for him. I’ve got everything I need, when I eventually get the chickens I’m planning on having fresh eggs for breakfast here every day.
I even had a go at building my own greenhouse, they didn’t make one in the size I wanted so I cobbled one together with my ever developing DIY skills! It’ll do the job for now, anyway!
Stay tuned for some recipes using the produce I manage to grow, I’ve gone for loads of radishes as they’re so quick to grow so 101 things to do with a radish may have to start soon! Oh and if you have any hints and tips for how to fight back against the slugs with a small curious dog running around do let me know!
