February! February was my last post!! 4 months!! Probably one of the busiest times of the allotment year and I haven't been around!
I have to tell you I started writing this post back in June and I've only got round to completing it tonight!
So, I'm going to do a brief monthly round up of plot and life shenanigans to get back on track! (using the power of images taken and stored on Instagram to remind me)
March: Onions were planted! Sweet peas were planted (hens ate the sweet peas!) In other news lots of crochet was done this month and I got in March what is turning out to be my dream job.
April: Brussels Sprouts (from seed) where planted, and lovely gooseberries and rhubarb started to appear. Cauliflowers and peas where planted, as was a courgette plant that didn't last more than a day (I cant even blame the hens for that one!)
May: The last of the leeks where picked, and the hens are laying like there's no tomorrow. Sweetcorns where planted and Martha Hen became very broody ad just attacked all the other hens, so she was brought home and we put 4 eggs underneath her to see what would happen.
In other news this month, I ran my first 10km since being diagnosed with M.E. and didn't do too shabbily!
June: New Job started! The onions have grown massive as have the brussel sprouts cauliflowers, the sweetcorn and peas.
Day 21 of the the chicken hatching came and there was some cheeping from an egg on day 22 look who I found:
July: Gooseberries, enough onions to feed an army, peas, cauliflowers and rhubarb all picked,
August: At the beginning of august a local farm had an outbreak of bird flu meaning at the beginning of the outbreak no egg produce or livestock could be transported to and from the allotment, so Martha and the chick have been at home ever since. I think it was maybe last weekend that the ban was lifted and so they can go back hopefully this week. The weather this weekend has been dreadful
I have blueberries ready to pick and a freezer for a gooseberries!
oh and the lack of photos?? Well you can thank nokia for that who promised the me the windows 10 preview would be totally legend (!) it wasn't it wiped every single photo amongst other things and ill be damned if I know how to get them off the cloud!
So that's it, I'll promise to blog more, but bye for now and happy planting xx
oh and by the way I passed my level 2 British sign language course :-)
