Well the weather isn’t being very helpful at the moment ! I was hoping to get a little bit of digging started and possibly the greenhouse/shed cleared out, but the rain and hailstone this week changed my mind.
Instead I decided to do some research and proper planning. I’m lucky that I know what has been previously planted so know what to avoid/change as needed.
My mum and I have measured the full plot and even broken it down to each individual bed and path sizes. I am planning to keep most of the beds as they are, however I’m going to split the biggest bed down the middle and make a small path as it’s too big to reach the middle from the current path, also the big bed nearest the shed I’m going to change into a seating area with a wildlife/pond area. I know we have a family of foxes that live on or near the allotments so have been advised not to use any bone meal as they will dig everything up.
Until the weather clears up I’ll continue planning and sourcing seeds, tools and other materials.
