As the Garlic was looking a little rusty we decided to harvest half of the crop. Arthur decided to help daddy but found it more funny hitting the garlic against our neighbours shed!!! The grandparents can have that one hehehehe!

On Friday we spent a wet morning ( Typical) starting to dig over the ground in front of the Greenshouse, we managed to get down for about 9am ( after a nice breakfast) and lastest till about 12noon. The rain was startin to get wet and as the ground is clay it gets very messy. We had made could process and decided to call it a day and come back on Saturday. We was glad we did as the rain got heavier and became very cold.
We returned on Saturday morning and made very good process, we had to stop at 12noon as we had a Easter Egg Hunt to attend to! This still gave us a good size area to plant the spuds.
I returned today on my own to try and plant the spuds but I found the ground to wet and mud was very sticky. So instead I did a bit of weeding , dug up all my leeks to allow space for the Iceberg lettuce I have growing in the greenhosue

We did not do very well growing last year due to the weather but we did manage to dig all of the allotement for the first time!!
We did manage to plant some Garlic and Leeks in October, we paid a visit last week but I couldnt bare to look as I thought the area would be full of weeds. Steve went to check first and he reported the area was not too bad. To my amazement the Garlic was growing well and no weeds,this is due to the new digging system we are using. The leeks where growing well but not as deep as I would have like. Something to work on for this year, GET BIGGER LEEKS!
