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.
Roll on the weekend 🙂
Plot 5A is coming along nicely.
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 (or windscreen wiper beans, as we call them – because of the ‘squeak when you eat’!!!)
Sweet Peas and Electric Daisies
Sweetcorn and mini pumpkins
Giant Sunflowers and Peas (Wando)
Mexican Tree Spinach
Amaranthus and Marigolds
Goji Berries and Marigolds
and more Marigolds (I may have a few too many…96 potted up so far…I ran out of pots!)
Errrrrm…a few more Electric Daisies…
Gardeners Delight tomatoes
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!!
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 next door to my Plot 5A…it would be perfect! Don’t you agree?
