Exodus 20:17

Plot 5A is coming along nicely.

Plot 5A

So far, I’ve planted daffodils, tulips, dahlias, herbs, sunflowers, borage, comfrey, chard, cabbage, broad beans, onions, garlic, shallots, carrots, rhubarb, lettuce, peas, potatoes, strawberries, blueberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants, a cardoon, a boysenberry and a blackberry but I’ve so much more waiting in the wings…

Purple Climbing Beans

Gardeners Delight

Tumbling tomatoes – I actually might have gone a little over board on the tomato front too…with 3 Tumblers, 1 Shirley, 1 Alicante, 3 Gardeners Delight, 2 Sweet Millions, 1 Rosella and 1 Black Russian (I intend to try this one outside) – between two greenhouses!!!

I’m also waiting for a few plants…an Inca Berry, a Chilean Guava – Ka Pow, a Jostaberry, a Black Raspberry and some Beetroot plugs!

There’s also a seed box full of seeds waiting for me to sow!!!!

Needless to say, I will need plenty of water so Mr D bought me an IBC tank which used to contain fruit concentrate – it needs a good scrub but for Ā£10, I think it’s fab!!

Water Butt

I need more land!!!!! It’s no joke. Haha…I know – ‘Thou shalt not covert’ but is it wrong to covert land if the current owner is neglectful?!!

Plot 4A

Plot 4A next door to my Plot 5A…it would be perfect! Don’t you agree?

  1. I agree, you certainly do need a plot extension! I love the bunting and I’d have never thought to use pegs as plant labels – inspired. Where did you find the multi-coloured planter? I want one šŸ™‚

    1. Inspired by a fellow blogger and now an essential part of my kit after my little cairn terrier jumped up onto one of the bay window sills knocking seed trays and labels everywhere! I had to then wait for second leaves to plant sort. Lesson learned. The rainbow planter was bought from sutton seeds in the reduced section šŸ™‚


  2. By heck… looking good on your 5A! We so need a greenhouse… our garden and windowsills are groaning at the weight of plants waiting to go into our 5B! Well done on all your great looking seedlings, the planting will keep you busy for a few hours! We’ve still got uncared for plots nearby which does make you think what you could do with that extra space… but we’ve been told a lot of allotment tenants only start appearing now after May Day… apparently as allotment novices we’re very eager though it would be perfect if you could get 4A! Have fun and happy allotmenteering! šŸ™‚
