Not had chance to update as we’ve spent the last night or so in hospital, we’re due our 3rd baby any day had a few complications but we’re all okay, not had her yet……
We had a very busy day Sunday We had all of us there Lily-Rose Ethan Gemma and Myself, We started by putting up the old swing up we had in out old house, we dont have the room now but we do at the allotment 🙂
Lily loved having the Swing at the allotment however shes 3 and struggles so where as its a good idea to keep her happy its not great when every 2 minutes all you hear is day DAAADDDD Push me please lol
Ethan on the other hand can quite happily swing away to his hearts content.
We took the Rotavator this weekend and got it all tilled it looks really good could do with a little more work but it’s looking good compared to what it did look like, really could do with some well rotted manure but unfortunately we haven’t got any rotten manure so i do have Fish blood and bone and Chicken Pellets we’re going to use
Really impressed with how its coming along we have Broads coming on now its still really cold on the nights here in Grimsby just managing highs of 7 or 8 Degrees in the day so not got allot started just yet we got first earlies in this weekend tried them in sacks whether they grow or not is another matter as I stated before no soil so just manure …. I know I know but its our first year so they have a choice ……
There is one in there Honest
Broad Beans Poking through.
I checked today when i went to feed the chickens and we have 13 beans coming and loads of leeks now i cant wait to get them in and planted and see it in a couple of months time and reap all the hard work we’ve put in.
Gemma was busy bless her even 38 weeks pregnant she struggled to get down there but she planted the last of the Garlic another 2 1/2 rows and we got some Red sun Shallots from the allotment Shed bag of red and white for 60p did a row of each, we got 4 more rows of snow ball onions in also only close 5″ apart roughly making most of the space wont get massive onions be will get some nice smaller onions with really intense flavour bigger isn’t always better.
38 Weeks Pregnant but still getting involved, Brilliant Wife.
That pic reminds me i also cut the water butts to make small planters for salad leaves and things such alike spring onions etc . Going to attach feet and raise them to waist height 27 and already looking after the back lol
We dod our best to trim the Blue berries back again were not used to having fruit especially over grown and out of control bushes so we pruned it back took out the dead and tied it back take a look any advise would be appreciated Thanks.
Cant wait to get there again not sure when that might be though with the imminent arrival of Stinson number three, but I’m sure I can squeeze in an hour here or there when I’m feeding the Ducks and Chickens.
I will update you all very soon with allotment and Stinson number Three who if you were wondering does have a name. We’re planning on calling her Amelia.
