Allotment Spring / Summer update

Posted: July 9, 2021

NRHS Allotment Spring/Summer 2021

Spring on the allotment was unusual to say the least! We had a long spell of rain that flooded the veg beds that went on for a month preventing us digging over the veg beds and a whole month of dry weather with frost every morning, making it difficult to harden off the plants and to plant out our crops. We had a mouse in the greenhouse that seemed to have a liking for the chillies, sweet peppers and tumbling tom tomato seedlings and ate the lot! So we fell a bit behind! We had to re sow seeds, and had a late planting out season with the rest of the country.

How on earth do the farmers manage to feed us all!
