Allotment Weekly – w/c 25 March

We have had great weather this week and it finally feels like time to really get going with planting and sowing seeds. So Pre-School have planted radishes and spinach seeds, and the Babies have planted lily bulbs in pots.  The onions, peas and other flowers planted a few weeks ago are doing well.

The Pre-School group worked very hard removing spent soil from the poly tunnel. An organic fertiliser and peat free soil has been added to encourage this year’s crops.

Lots of wildlife has been spotted by the children including sunbathing bumble bees, centipedes, butterflies and a tree creeper spotted by myself as I was tidying up today.  There is also a blue tit nesting in the back of the next door allotment shed.
