My new allotment


29.04.09. Welcome to my blog, I have aquired an allotment about 6 weeks ago and would like to share my new venture with anyone who is interested. I have already started to dig and plant and will keep you informed of any, if any of my vegetables make an appearance, also on the allotment is a rather old but apt greenhouse. I have decided to put tomatoes, cucumbers and chile peppers in as my first assignment. These have all been grown from seeds so lets hope that I can get at least 50% of what I have planted to come good, oh and I have had a small grapevine given from my sister in law, which I have put in and lo and behold this has already got leaves growing and looks pretty healthy. If anybody has any usefull tips or information please dont hesitate to send them big or small I will take them all on board. Thats it for today will keep you updated as and when. Andy

Welcome to Goy Andy4jak! Glad to hear of another "allotment keeper!"

I was only going to grow window sill tomatoes this year, but I've also planted seed potatoes, plug strawberries, seeds for lettuce, radishes, carrots, beetroot and bought 3 blackcurrant bushes and some rhubarb! No wonder veg seeds have outsold flower seeds for first time since ww2!! Lol!!

Please post piccies to us of your plot! Happy growing!
