The only thing growing in the allotment at the moment is the garlic, which Scarlett helped me plant last year. Scarlett came with me to the garden centre last year to buy the garlic. I wanted white garlic at £1.99 for three bulbs, she wanted pink garlic at £1.99 for one bulb, so guess what I am growing? Yep, pretty pink garlic! We also harvested the new potatoes at the same time, which according to Scarlett, was like a treasure hunt. Later when we were eating them, she declared that they were the best potatoes she had ever had in her life (all three years of it!).
Anyway, I digress. Pete and I spent a couple of hours at the allotment, mulching and adding new compost to the raised beds, getting them ready for planting. This gave me the incentive to start sowing once we got back to the barge. I have soooo many seeds that I really must not buy any more this year, just use what I already have. However, any allotmenteer will tell you what an empty pledge that is - there are so many lovely looking new varieties to try each year, that it is nigh on impossible not to buy the odd packet, just to try you understand.
So this is the chart table right now and I haven't even started on the window sills!
