    Our Half Plot (Take 2)-img_1841.jpgOur Half Plot (Take 2)-img_1842.jpgAnother morning spent in the rain, I looked like a drowned rat when I collected my little boy from nursery at lunch time, but a productive morning it was too. Despite the rain, I managed to fill 3 more raised beds, this time making a start on removing the huge earth mound at the front of the plot using this to fill the beds.

    I planted our autumn raspberries from our old plot, along with a load of summer raspberry canes that I removed from this plot whilst laying the weed control membrane.

    The first bed on the left is our transplanted autumn canes, the centre with the summer ones and the right bed has the boysenberry and loganberry plants one of each. The idea is to create a fruit wall the full side of the plot, we will have raspberries, blackberries, Logan and boysenberries, currants as well (not sure what they actually are as they are just starting to bud up now.

    I also finally re fitted the guttering to the shed and finished off putting in the last 3 fence posts. A busy 2 hours was had.....

    A good morning spent down on the plot today, finished off the fence ends by securing and making KID friendly, strawberry runners planted through membrane in the raised bed between the polytunnels.

    We also took the opportunity to sort out the two beds that run along the entrance path, weeding, laying membrane and stones and planting lavender and a clematis. Looking forward to seeing these all in bloom, they should be a welcoming sight as we walk down to the plot each visit.

    Got back to find the post man had delivered the ten gold autumn raspberry canes, they will have to be weekend job, a great excuse to nip down the allotment
