Welsh Girl's Allotment

Hello World,(a bit ambitious as only my mam knows I am here yet !) This is my blog detailing my quest for an allotment, its cultivation and hopefully bountiful crops. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LEAVE COMMENTS, EVEN IF IT IS ONLY A HELLO !!!

And their in .....

After much promising we actually have growth at the plot, cabbages, Vanguard, red and white onions, Electric and Swift. There is actually a method in the madness of my bizarre planting scheme. The cabbages have been planted in a square and there are two rows of onions in the middle. I have done it this way to protect them from the marauding wellies of my daughter, if she can see a bit of green then I can hope she will not trample on the onions in the middle.

The whole allotment is on a twist and a tilt, so even though I marked out straight rows I don't appear to have them - it depends on where you are standing as to how straight the rows are - honestly - anyway this is food to eat not to look at !!!

Congratulations! The first plot planting is always a landmark event.

Hey great idea - I might have to try that. I have a 2yr old who likes to walk right across the middle of seed beds!

Great blog - you've done an amazing job of turning the plot into something you can use.
