We have taken on another half plot which has been cleared and dug over and is ready to go for 2012, we will cover it now with a thick black damp proofing plastic to stop any nutrients being washed away in the winter rains. That is not to say nothing has gone in the ground on our new plot, we could not leave it all empty as that is not in our nature. Garlic music which we had spare after planting out on our other plots was put in 2 rows of 32 cloves also our Blackcurrant, Redcurrant and Gooseberry bushes have been moved to the new plot as they needed more room.
This week also we manged to bag ourselves some cheap bareroot fruit trees from Asda they were priced at £7 but when at the checkout they came in at £3.50 so we got the following trees and they are also planted on new plot.
Conference Dessert Pear.
Bramley Culinary Apple.
Sunburst Dessert Cherry.
Cox's Orange Dessert Apple.
Spartan Dessert Apple.
Idared Culinary Apple.
Beurre Dessert Pear.
Golden Delicious Dessert Apple.
So as you can see by the above list hopefully over the next couple of years Our Allotment will be providing us with lots of fruit to go with all our bountiful vegtables. The rest of the allotment and tunnel is still providing lots of goodies including Parsnips, Carrots, Tomatoes, Chard, Chillis, Celeriac, Celery, Leeks, Sprouts, Kale and J Artichokes. Plus what we have planted and growing for spring more Kale, Savoy cabbage, Offenham spring cabbage and not forgetting enough garlic to sink a small ship. I will try and get to plot this week to take some photos to post but due to inner ear infection everything I do at the moment is a struggle so no promises.
Hope you enjoyed the update on our allotment take care Jamie.
