    1. We'll start using the ones that were sown last autumn soon, Endah. Just hope that the brassicas stay healthy.

  2. Hehe I see you have had those bean weavils biting round the edges of your broad beans, Mine are pretty bad so might re-sew some and they got my peas too. Just used some of that nematode stuff so will see how it goes

  6. That's not so much a "plot" as a Market Garden! Your photos make me very aware of how shaded my plot is. I''d love to have beds which got sunshine from all angles. Mine only get half a day's worth at best.
    Is that a Cardoon in the first set of photos? Or an Artichoke? I was once given some seeds for Cardoon, but I felt that the plants would be far too big for my tiny plot, so I never sowed them.

    1. They are cardoons and they do grow huge - we have an artichoke which is smaller. We started with about eight but got rid of all but 2. Strong winds flatten them every year and they die right down. All the growth is made in just one year. Shade or not you get great results.

  7. that Iris among the poached egg plant is lovely as are all the pictures, as the proverb goes this post must have saved you "a thousand words" I am much happier looking at this sort of post I don`t need dialogue, by the way just how much ground have you got? it looks nursery sized

    1. Wednesday is my Wordless post day David. I must admit I tend to lose focus when reading long posts and often don't take in the information after a while especially where the text isn't broken up by photos.

      We have five allotment plots which amount to about a third of an acre.
