The last month has been relatively quiet at the allotment (we've been on holiday) and apart from watering and harvesting there is not a great deal to do apart from...you've guessed it...digging!
Over the summer I took the opportunity of making myself a "wish list" of all the things I would like at the allotment and I came up with the following:-
- 4 big beds, all 4 ft wide
- herb bed
- strawberry bed
- salad bed
- 2 childrens beds
- wild flower & flower bed
- raspberries along trellis
- blackcurrant & redcurrant dividing "hedge"
- fruit tree(s)
I've also looked into a bulk order of compost/manure from the local council being delivered to the site so that the worms can work some magic over the winter months.
