Yep, been there, done that. No snow, no wind will stop the community allotmentieers.
Neither could the garlic and broad beans be stopped. They will use every bit of sunshine and the slightest warmth to get those enzymes in the cells ticking and grow through winter.
There was time for tea of course. It was quiet, can you imagine that there was no one else? Sometimes it is nice to have this peace in the midst of an urban area and normally bustling allotments when the sun is out.
Next I feed the compost bins with some mushroom compost which were kindly donated by our very own mushroom growers at www.urbanfarmers.co.uk. I do hope to be surprised by a bunch of mushrooms growing on top of the contents of one of the bins towards spring.
And another cup of tea before covering up the new plot designated for fruit trees and shrubs with the weed control fabric in preparation for spring when we can do some work there as well.
That’s it. See you at one of the events below:
