Muck Spreading

On Sunday 25th March 2012 I purchased 1 Tayberry and 1 Gooseberry sapling which I duly planted in the afternoon up at the top end of the plot where the rest of the fruit appears to be going . Whilst I had the helping hand of my son I decided to transfer the manure I had been offered in to the bed I was preparing for onions . The result of which can be seen in the photograph below. 

On Monday 26th March I picked up 2 large tubs to be used as water butts on the way home from work . No planting occurred today as it was just a case of getting the butts on the plot .

Tuesday 27th March saw me planting a 110 onion sets in to the bed I had been preparing since last week . I also spent time weeding out the bed on the right-hand side and putting manure on that . Gradually the allotment is taking shape and hopefully before May arrives it will be looking more productive indeed.
Thanks for reading, Paul
