Here are my Garlic, we order from the Isle of Wight Garlic Farm, always get a good crop. Last year we bought from a garden center as I was late in buying them and they were not as good as the Garlic Farm
I Iam trying to grow carrots at the plot for the first time, I grew them at home in pots at home last year. I am using an old waterbutt to grow the carrots and fill with compost. I have also planted some in the ground and at home i pots
Broadbeans are growing well
Potatoes are just starting to show there heads. Some other plot holders planted there spuds before us and they have been effected by frost that we had a few days ago

We have been busy planting and digging at the beginning of 2011, we managed to dig over and add manure to a big area on the plot which has given us a great start to the growing season. It has allowed us to prepare the ground for the beans, normally I just plant my beans but this time I have dug out a trench and added manure and paper to see if it makes any differences.
The area is just in front of the car.
We have loads growing in the greenhouse. We have Peas, dwarf beans, courgettes, onions, Broad beans, cucumbers, toms, and my last set of spuds chitting.
I have already planted in my allotment Garlic, one set of Broad beans, one set of onions, one set of peas and a few carrots in a old water butt cut in half. I was thinking why I always plant my Veg and not plant in batches, no idea, so I am trying it this year.
Arthur is helping me water the Broad Beans I have just planted.
