I also harvested some broccoli and alicante tomatoes.
At the allotment I have planted up a row of Senshyu Yellow onions,Red Electric onions,Golden Gourmet shallots and a few more Garlic bulbs.
I covered my 12 by 8 bean patch for next year and got 8 bags of manure from my niece's stable.
Someone has finally taken on Plot 72 and they have made a decent start in weeding it.
The next job is to plant my spring bulbs.

On Sunday I worked in the allotment shop and took the opportunity to stock up with daffodils,tulips,crocuses and onions.
A bit of overnight rain softened up my old onion bed above so I have dug over a 12 by 8 section ready for a groundsheet to cover it over the winter period.
I also got some bonus garlic from last years planting which is a bit on the soft side but should be alright for cooking.It smells gorgeous.
From the garden we have had some Cabbage which was very tasty.
I have got Koralik,Beefsteak and Sungold tomatoes fermenting for seeds next year.

I went to the allotment this morning and found that Plot 72B has been taken and cleared in less than a week.
Yippee no more 6 foot weeds.
Now all I need is for someone to do the same with Plot 72 and I will be a happy bunny.
ans and Picasso potatoes and gave the plot a good watering.I also started my planting of Albigensian Wight garlic from saved summer cloves.
I have started off some sweet pea seeds in toilet rolls and taken cuttings of my ivy leaved geraniums.
I have also started saving Anaheim chilli seeds for my seed circle.
