The allotment diary. What happens when, what works, what doesn't on plot 18 of Swanland allotments.
Wednesday, 2 June 2010
This morning we planted out our first sweetcorn. Seven plants looked big enough to go out, with as many again to plant out at a later date. The ground is damp, there's only a light breeze and the sun is out. This is the forecast state for the next few days, so the corn should get established.
We replaced two of our courgettes with spares. That doesn't leave us with any more spares, but the warmer weather should do them some good.
We took some asparagus and some rhubarb both looked very good. The rain yesterday seems to have released some pent up urge to grow, but especially in the weeds and the grass around the edge of the plot, so they need dealing with quite soon.
