August 2022 Allotment Andy Update
September 12, 2022allotment
Has been a funny month, hot and dry but most of the plants seemed to have loved it. Plenty of watering of course but now the harvest of apples, plums, tomatoes, purslane and a lot more in earnest.
Planted a green manure on a 10m sqare plot. Never tried before, but just threw the seed across a couple of empty beds and will see how it goes.
Moved a lot of compost onto the big compost heap, made space for the pond i want to make. Covered it all with 6 wheelbarrows of fresh horse.manure. looks nice and big again.
Big harvest of tomatoes, they never stop coming. Cucumbers too.
Finally, the peppers have started to appear, i started them the same time as the tomatoes, but they never really got going.
Things to grow next year: pumpkin patch with corn and beans (3 companion plants)
Things i didnt grow well: peas
Things to plant : leeks, pak choi, spinach
