Beginning the patch
We are now entering into spring and the allotment (weed patch) we took on in the summer needs to be whipped into shape. With a new baby arriving last autumn and our limited gardening knowledge it is going to be a full on challenge to get some produce and to keep the weeds away.
The plot has been recently cultivated so it should be OK.
The plan is to save the rasberries already on the plot and to mulch and leave at least a third of the plot until next year.
We will be planting potatoes, broad beans, onions and shallots 'straight away' or in the next week or so as there is still some digging to do before we can make a start.
We also will be watching what is happening on other patches for ideas etc.
