Extra 40 leeks!

It seems I ordered some veg earlier in the year but it seems I have forgotten so 40 leek plants turned up at my office last week.  Luckily I do have room.

Update view

Here is an updated view of the allotment

Yes I am back

It's been a few years but I am back.
We have had a busy few months getting the plot ready for this years growing season.

We have never had much success with beans so this year we decided to grow the broad beans directly into the ground and so far it's been a success
We don't normally have much success with our onions but this year we haven't done to bad, this is the second batch I have planted but they seem to do ok.

I am trying carrots again, this time I started them off in the greenhouse then transferred them to the allotment. I haven't managed to thin them so they won't be big carrots but it's a start.

Produce from the allotment

This year we are doing really well on actually growing Veg on the plot, here are a few pictures


The carrots I planted a few months ago are doing very well. I used severall diferent types of carrots and I pulled a few purple one up a few days ago - I have some very strange looking carrots

I have also planted a few more buckets of carrots at the end of August. Arthur helped me sow the seeds, I think he used a whole packet of seeds in the Green bucket below!!! Oh well atleast he had fun and starting to like being down the allotment.
