To recap on the month of March after our travels from New Zealand.
England had the 'worst' winter for some 35 years so returning to the allotment after two months away we came back to a frozen then a sodden plot. The upshot of this was that there was little weed growth and the 'professionals' who surround us had made little head way. We spent a few weeks preparing the beds and clearing the site for spring planting.
Our allotment association is in the midst of a viagra-like reinvigoration and has all kinds of new plans to increase the number of plots and plot holders, keep out the deer and create a communal area. As a result of this the workable area of our own plot, previously half covered with brambles, has now been cleared so we have bribed two other landgirlz (on secondment from the southern hemisphere) to do their worst with the new half.
As April approaches we have onions and garlic on the way (from a December sowing), newly planted potatoes, broad beans and peas. We are waiting for Spring to spring!
