First Planting of potatoes

A nice day and a very satisfying session putting in some potatoes on the new plot!
Once again the small Azada proved to be ideal for taking out the trench and earthing up.

At last!

Quite an event, just finished de-brambling and digging the second plot, worth a glass or two of wine tonight I think.....

Going potty!

It's a really lovely morning so the potting bench has been given a trial run. (Looks much better with it's wood stain finish I must say!). I added a top from 5mm black plastic sheet and it's very pleasant to work on! You will see in one pic that I have chopped up some old guttering into lengths and stuck cardboard ends on with parcel tape. These will fit in our mini plastic greenhouse. They will have peas in them and eventually I can drop them in my car boot and trundle them down to the allotment and slide them straight into a trench..

Anyone wondering what is going on with the wall behind the bench, that is a bit of madness that resulted when we decided to brighten up the view of rather a shabby wall from the kitchen window. It is very bright and still takes us by surprise but makes us happy too....!
