Twins

I have twins! Not identical twins, of course but I’m pleased to announce that Plot 4A is finally all mine!  I now have Plot 5A and Plot 4A…perfect!  I’ve loads of work to do (once again) however I also have loads of wonderful planting space.

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…

Tumblers

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 £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?
