Allotment Heaven January 2015

Here's the first monthly update on the new plot. Almost all dug over. Thinking I might be able to use a no dig regime. Not encountered any clay and weeding amounts to dragging a rake across the soft topsoil.

Currently got long term planting of raspberries, strawberries, chives and a blackberry bush. Seasonal planting of garlic, onions and broad beans. Also winter lettuce, plus the leeks transferred from the old plot.

Seasonal might not be quite the right term. Planted in late November and early December, about two months too late, some are struggling. Still waiting for any showing from the broad beans, winter lettuce and one of the garlic varieties.

Not much to do for the next couple of months. Just finish off the digging and that's it until March ~:0(
