After my parents gave us a hand on the allotment a couple of weeks back, I spent an hour there this morning – as advised by my super knowledgeable parents! Just clearing any weeds which were popping up and then starting to dig over and clear a bit more space.
I now have a good sized bed to start planting my first lot of seeds – Carrots (Flyaway F1) which will go in the ground next month.
As you can see, we have something sprouting up already. We rescued these little guys from some of the grass ridden patches of the plot. I do know that they are part of the Allium genus, but unsure as to wether they are leeks or spring onions. I look forward to finding out nonetheless!
I am really excited to start planting and growing our own food! I encourage everyone to do the same, even if you just have a small balcony or even a window box. You could plant herbs or smaller fruit/veg.
