Six on Saturday – May 19th

While everyone else seems to be watching the build up to the Royal Wedding, I’m planning what’s heading onto the allotment next, trying to work out a way of ‘bulking up’ the soil in a raised bed (the multi purpose compost I put in is just like dust!) and hoping that the runner beans will get on and grow faster!

Six on Saturday – April 7th – raised bed disaster

What’s that strange glowing blob in the sky? And more to the point, why is the sky blue instead of that murky grey colour? It must mean the sunshine is out, so we could finally get some more work done on the allotment! Welcome to my  Six on Saturday!

Six on Saturday – March 31st – seeds

So much for the weather improving – it’s been wet, wet and a bit more wet this week (and forecast even more wet over the Easter weekend).

The ground is far too wet to dig, so I had a rummage through my tub of seeds to sort out what I can plant once the weather improves (again)…. here’s my  Six (seeds) on Saturday!
