The salad mix is growing really fast, no sign of any other seedling, but I planted quite a few new things
- shallot Vigarmor
- salad Lollo Rosso
- celery Victoria
- sweet peas (5 varieties, leftovers from last year)
- tomato San Marzano
- chamomile (lawn)
- pea Twinkle (last year it did nothing, so I have to monitor)
- broadbeans Express
in the new bed I finished!I am very happy with the new bed, it has come out nicely and I am sure the beans will be growing well as the soil is very rich and crumbly: looked very healthy. Let's hope the holly is going soon, I will mention this to him when I see my neighbour next time.
Today it was really deserted, only me at the allotment, not even Geoff around that I could see.
Anyway, after finishing my bed and planting seeds, I also decided to clean up a little at the back of the shed and start off my "nature reserve", with a wildlife station similar to the one I saw in Garden Organic magazine back in November.
I also took off my fleece tent, in the end it was no use at all, I could have used the fleece on the artichokes instead.
