Coming to Life
I went up to the allotment today. The sun is shining and there are definite signs of life. I have rhubarb and globe artichokes, planted last year so this will be my first harvest. The fruit garden is positively blooming, along with the odd row of elephant garlic that didn't grow last year but has popped up this year. The herb garden is coming back to life. I left the celery in last year and it has turned into a cut and come again crop! And lastly the strawberry patch which I have great hopes for this year. I have a lot of clean sawdust from a chap who is renovating a wooden boat and I understand this makes a great mulch for strawberries. I haven't shown you all the weeds between the beds, but clearing them properly is the major job this year. Anyone got any old carpet?
