Greenish antics of Nige to grow, build and make a gr8 world

Greenish antics – frugal, growing, trying and sharing

Get them taties in the brown…. May 10, 2007

Filed under: Allotment,Gardening — Canvas Summer Nige @ 10:55 pm

The digging prep had been completed and I was impatient to get something in to see if – in fact – it was that easy to grow stuff as a recently read biography about clueless blokes allotmenting had found.  Plus a freecycler posted some free unwanted chitted potatoes and onion sets.  It was too good a motivation to pass up.

So picking up the 4 potatoes (bit shrivelled looking and highly expected to die) and onions, plus grabbing a pack of carrot seeds we got stuck in to the awaiting allotment site 1 – patch 2.  The carrots went in as two rows bounded each side and in between with a row of onions as recommended by various sources (anti carrot fly).  I’d proposed this section of patch 2 as for carrots as it seemed the loosest soil to leave uncomposted.

With an over-enthused ceremony by Nige, they were put to their earthy bed.  All was happy until Ema pointed out that they probaly wouldn’t be ready until September!
