Happy National Allotments Week! It's a while since we had an overview of my plot, so I thought now is the ideal time to do so. I do love this time of the year when the plot is full and there's loads of harvesting to be done :)
I'm pretty happy with the way I have things laid out now with the mix between raised beds, permanent planting and other areas.
However, the bramble amongst the gooseberries is proving to be a thorny(!) problem. I'm going to have to dig out the gooseberries (and possibly take cuttings to replace them - I haven't decided one way or the other yet) in order to tackle it more thoroughly.
You'll see from some of the accompanying notes that I still have some planting left to do later this year. Most of it will go where the potato no-dig experiment is. The exception is the wasabi which is earmarked for a space below the apple trees as it likes a shady spot.
So I have a few weeds to get rid of, some further planting, plus loads of harvesting left to do this year. Overall I'm pleased with the way things have gone so far. How about you, how's your plot faring this week?
This is my first post celebrating this year's National Allotments Week. Wednesday's looks at the fab Roll Out the Barrows and Friday's is For Seed.
