We’ve Grown a Greenhouse !

Over the last few weeks we’ve been experiencing a growth spurt on the allotment – aside from tray upon tray of burgeoning seedlings, we’ve also been growing some less edible, more practical, features on the plot.

First to appear was our kindly donated and much awaited greenhouse, which was slow to take root, but which is now standing proudly next to our shed.

After starting to clear the so-far-neglected half of our plot, four tractor tyres have sprung up ready for growing flowers, and Mr O has cleverly planted a new fence and gate, recycled from old wood.

On the other side of the plot, a new long bed has been sown and a cane structure has been cultivated in readiness for Sweetpeas.

And the dividing fence in the centre of our plot has been removed, making way for a new bed to sprout up.

In the realm of actual fruit and veg, we harvested the first of our Leeks last week. Better late than never, there’s a fine line between them being big enough to eat, and bolting.

During the hungry gap of May it feels odd to go home from the allotment empty handed, but during this ‘meantime’ we can get stuck into expanding and developing our growing space.

Have you grown any new structures on your plot this year ?
