It’s hard to believe that I’ve had my allotment for just over a year now. The plot is like a blank canvas at the moment and its exciting to think about the possibilities this year. Without the time consuming (and tiring!) jobs of digging over a vacant weedy plot, putting up a shed and creating paths I’m hoping it’ll be less of a frantic rush to get seeds into the ground and more thought out.
I’m planning a lot for this year. I’m going to try some new vegetables; cucumber, garlic, kale and squash as well as favourites from last year like spinach, broad beans and courgettes. I also want to try some new varieties so I’m sowing red onions and shallots alongside the regular ones and purple green beans (I’m still a little disappointed they turn green when you cook them though). Hopefully, I’ll have more successes than failures but the hardest bit right now is waiting for the weather to warm up so I can get started!
