“not more weeding”, she barked 🙂

Midge watches on while I get to grips with heaps of manure! Well at least I’m having fun (I think) 😉

But all in all good progress this weekend. I’ve found a good source of manure from a nearby stables which I’ve begun to dig in to the main plot. I’ve also started a ‘hotbed’, planted out my Rhubarb (Victoria) and whilst I was planted it discovered another one already well on its way.

I’ve started watching a TV programme called ‘Grow Your Own Veg‘ that’s just begun on Friday at 8:30pm on BBC2 which should come in handy. Plus Sue (Mark’s mum) dug out an article from the paper that had some good tips and also had an offer to get a free veg starter pack open to the first 1,000 registrants at www.rhs.org.uk/vegetables/

Well, who couldn’t it’s fab! So it arrived on Monday and I’ve already started to deck it out with a variety of shelves, shovels and storage – I just shouldn’t be let loose in Ikea on my own. It’s going to be great place to keep all my gardening paraphernalia, but the best thing…Midge seems to like it!

It’s even harder work with a furry jacket. Midge takes a break whilst laying the foundations to the new shed.

More about Ragged Radishes…

Ragged Radishes is the garden allotment blog of Lucy Crosbie (that's me). As a novice allotment owner, I took on plot no. 27 at the Burras Lane site in Otley, West Yorkshire in Oct 2006. I've now moved to a lovely house with a large garden in Knaresborough.
