The new gardening season is already in full swing due to the balmy weather we have been having and we have a new addition to our team, little Luise was born just over three weeks ago and is already a frequent visitor. Her perfect timing means we’ll be enjoying a lot of time (maternity leave) in the allotment and hopefully welcoming many visitors!
To kick of the year we planted some strawberry plants under the rose bushes. Our raised bed which C (my husband!) has been filling with our self made compost has been divided into 50cmx50cm squares and the first one has been planted with Kohlrabi. In preparation for the other squares I have prepped mini newspaper pots and sewn spinach, pumpkins, chard, sweet peas and tomatoes… Watch this space to see them develop!
