April 2011 Allotment Diary

Soil improvement

The soil is warming up with more sunlight hours. This is what all the plant and seedlings need.
We have been having free manure drops to the allotment site.
The leaf mulch, which we talked about last month, has been riddled and it is fantastic.
Yes finally we have the pond in. After many arguments and mistakes it was put in two weeks ago.
If you have not already done so get those tomato, chilli and any other greenhouse plants seeded up.
A friend has just bought herself two cordon Victoria plum trees and two blueberry bushes. These latter two are going into containers…
Nesting, nesting, nesting. The birds are going mad…
