It came as rather a shock when in September 2010 I had a call from the council asking if I was still interested in an allotment. I had been on the waiting list for 4 years and had completely forgotten all about it.
- Heat-Prepared Onions Results
I’ll be planting Hytech F1 and, of course Marshalls New Fen Globe - it was so timely to receive such a stunning photo from one of our customers, Sean Higgnett last week, showing how well his onions had stored over winter.

I seem to be on my hands and knees a lot lately trying to pull out all the little seedlings of Speedwell that seeds itself everywhere - it’s a pretty little blue flower but I really don’t want it all over my borders - it’s rampaging over the lawn too!

It was a nice fine day on Sunday so I finished off weeding the vegetable beds they weren’t too bad really just a bit of chickweed to pull out. I then raked them over ready for sowing and covered one of them with a couple of layers of fleece to warm the soil up a bit.
