Well, anyone else have one or interested in "growing their own"
I managed to get an allotment about the size of my back garden! (its not a small garden either) and it's only a half plot too.
I'd been brought up knowing how to grow all sorts of veggies by my folks and grandparents. Can't beat the satisfaction of seeing your hard work pay off eother. Especially when you can eat it!
Plus digging it over is fantastic exercise!
So, what have i got planted:
4 3/4 rows of spuds, king edwards and maris peer
Red onions (60 of)
White onions (60 of)
Shallots (only 12)
Spring onions, three rows, but i think the birds have had them!
2 types of carrot sewn in between the onions to keep carrot fly away
Beans approx 6 plants
Cabbage 1/2 a row
cauliflower 1/2 a row
Broccoli 1/2 a row
Still got loads to plant yet, like A ince big squash plant, 4 tomato plants and a load of sugar snap peas, all growing in my £9.99 plastic greenhouse!
Although i've done this before, this is my first stab at the whole thing on my own, so things may go badly wrong, but its all a learing curve.
I'm getting a load of seeds in for some interesting patio/container plants like dwarf chillies and dwarf peppers to accompany my patio herb garden at home.
I'll keep you posted as to what goes on!
