The allotment diary. What happens when, what works, what doesn't on plot 18 of Swanland allotments.

Parsnip chits have erupted. The first 41 have been planted into compost in cardboard tubes. We bought a potting tray - I was going to make one, but the tray was less than the wood and paint I would have needed and is easier to clean and store. It is great for these compost jobs, keeping the mess in one place. The sweet peas are showing now too. I still don't know where we will plant them yet, but they will certainly find a home. All but one broad bean germinated.
