Seed Sowing

 Slightly later than perhaps originally planned but this past month has been a bit...well, strange and found me preoccupied with other things in my life...

Originally I'd decided to not bother sowing a huge amount of edibles this year as we had planned to completely renovate the whole plot but after this past month I've decided to sow a few things and today I made a start with the following....


Sweetcorn 'Swift'  x 9

Squash 'Uchiki Kuri'  x 3

Runner Bean 'Scarlet Emperor'  x 6  


Small beginnings I know but this will give me the incentive to get some beds dug and thoroughly weeded so over the next month or three I shall hopefully clear the whole plot....or at least keep it under some sort of 'control' rather than it being the overgrown jungle it has been this past three years!  I intend to have it resembling  proper allotment by the autumn
