We have been waiting to be fairly certain there won’t be any more frosts, before planting the last few things in our veg plot, which is a courgette plant and some tomato plants.
We are not planting so many plants this year as there should be plenty of produce from the allotment. We decided just one courgette plant should be enough and I bought four tomato plants as they came in a pack of four and were low cost. I decided to try a yellow courgette as a bit of a change.
Yesterday I planted the courgette and tomato plants which now means the veg plot is full for now.
There are broad beans nearest on the left. Left of the path are white onions, red onions and garlic. To the left of them are runner beans and dwarf beans. Furthest away are the tomato plants and strawberries.
To the right of the path is a row of leeks that went to seed before we used them. Alan Titchmarsh says if your leeks have gone to seed you can leave them for striking alium like flowers. They are in bud at the moment. To the right are two rows of potatoes and at the back the raspberry canes. The courgette plant is at the front on the right.
From this direction you can see the tomatoes on the right (just watered in) and behind them the beans. This should be enough to give us some veg to pick on days when we don’t visit the allotment but will be supplemented by the allotment produce.
The boys are nearly finished with their new, low level, netting frame at the allotment and once it’s finished I will post an update.
