Allotment Weekly – w/c 8th April

The growing season is in full swing now and we can’t plant enough seeds quick enough. The poly tunnel is getting very full with germinating seeds in their trays. Some crops have been sown directly into the poly tunnel soil so we can get early crops of radish, spinach, peas and lettuce.

All three groups have planted potatoes, Charlotte and King Edward are the chosen crops this year. The rhubarb is ready, a lot of Rhubarb has been picked and delivered to Hannah in the kitchen, along with a good quantity of leeks.

The old shed has also been repaired and moved to a new spot, it’s looking great!
