Well, firstly apologies for no posts for a LONG time. Life and work took over my free time and I barely managed to keep the allotment going due to illness.


I am well on the mend now and we have started planting for this season already.


We have got in the ground:


Potatoes - Charlotte, Red Duke of York, Anya

Mange Tout - my usual selection of multi-colours - Golden (yellow), Shiraz (purple) and Oregon Sugar Pod (green)

Red Baron and Setton onions


The Asparagus I planted a couple of years ago is starting to produce a decent crop at last.


We resited and replanted the strawberry bed last year and this has been mulched ready for new crops.


I started the tomatoes and, as usual, have grown far too many! True to form, I am concentrating on growing a diverse variety - Tigerella striped, Four different types of black tomato, three different trailing cherry tomatoes, a large beefstead, plum tomatoes and yellow.


In addition, I have a selection of aubergine, chilli, summer and winter squashes, salads, french beans, runner beans and other crops also growing slowly in the conservatory at home which will be transferred to the allotment when they get a bit stronger.


What are you planting this year??
