8th May 2015

 Due to incidents on May 2nd I have been unable to spend anytime at the allotment this week and besides the weather hasn't been favourable for outside work either. I managed to pay a brief visit to the allotment on Friday 8th May and this was just to check on the seedlings in the polytunnel.

Collected Coriander and Tomato seeds sown at the end of March growing well.

Peas sown in April appearing amongst the Jerusalem Artichokes.


 This year amongst the many new vegetables I'm trying are Mexican Tree Spinach and Red Orach as recommended by Alys Fowler during her Kitchen Garden episode of the Great British Garden Revival series on the BBC back in 2014. Today I potted on these seedlings as they were getting too crowded for the seed tray that they germinated in.
