Planting Spring 2009

The site is now nearly fully operational. We now have raised beds in most of the plots and the stuff planted this year is now starting to grow. Quite a change from when we first took over.

First crop

Although Jono harvested his potatoes earlier, this is our first crop from the allotment. Its hard to believe this is just from 1 row of potatoes and 1 row of onions! Although we had a few potatoes that were no good due to the weather most of them were in great condition.

Progress has been slow during this growing season, but as crops come up we are now starting to put in raised beds to help keep it more organised for next year and to clearly define the paths. Tom and I put the second of these in last weekend and Jono put the other one at the top in the week before and already has leeks, Strawberries and Lettuce growing in it.

Although not shown here there has been significant progress on the bottom 3 allotments. Due to the efforts of Chris Lee and a few others the trees are being felled and ready to start burning and logging. We should have enough for a few bonfires now the nights are starting to draw in.

Party time

Even though there are few post about the progress, there is quite a lot going on. We descided it was time for a bit of a party so a BBQ we had yesterday afternoon. I forgot the photos of the party was too busy eating but the party finished in true alotement fashon ended with a bonfire. Some of the boys got a bit carried away and though we were running short of firewood (as if thats ever going to happen for a while!) and got the saw out and cut a tree down.

Hello all,

We (The gang at 48-49 & 182-185) are proposing a BBQ on Sunday 6th May (prob between 4pm - 10ish) on Plot 48 (full of tree stumps). We thought it would be a good chance to meet all our fellow allotmenters on Hagg House and a chance for people to get to know each other, share the "experience" of taking a plot there and maybe do some seed swapping etc etc.
So if people are interested lets do it (weather permitting)!

We have one small BBQ and we'll try and build another BBQ out of bricks.
Bring something to sizzle and something to gurgle ;-) and pray for a glorious day!

Anybody interested?

Shame about the thefts going on at the moment, we'll all have to keep vigilant! Here's a picture of Isaac (left) playing with Callum on the allotment.
