  1. Great harvest! Love the various berries that you get. So lovely.

    1. Thanks Endah, Its always a pleasure harvesting berries, particularly strawberries.

  2. I'm amazed that you are harvesting Runner Beans already. Mine are nowhere near ready!

    1. Hi Mark, I got them off to an early start in my poly tunnel in deep pots. Iv'e noticed over the past 2 years though, that when they flower early not all the beans set properly until some have been picked then there's a rush of beans later.

  3. No runner neans here yet - not even flowers - but lots of berries to pick.

    1. I'm sure your runner beans will be along soon. Same here with the berries. This weekend I will be dealing with the currants, up until then I'm inundated with garden peas. 2 evenings so far this week picking them.

    2. Just noticed the very frst flowers today!

The Last Post

As my readers will already know I moved to a new house (bungalow) last year. Much work, updating, d. i. y. and a vast amount of gardening and landscaping needed doing to the property. Most of the gardening to the rear of the property has now been completed just as the Wintery weather begins to take hold. A good sized vegetable plot is one of the features in the back garden prepared and ready to be utilised starting with next Springs sowing and planting. With this in mind I spent a couple of weeks last month tidying up N1 plot before deciding to give it up just over a week ago. Due to the amount of work on the house and gardens this year my blog posts have been just about none existent. Over the past seven years I have enjoyed reading many other allotment/gardening blogs and meeting/talking to lots of other gardeners on the "net". I hope my blog has been of interest and some use too, to all who have spent their time looking in on it. Good luck and best wishes to all you love…

Rooko's April Top 10 Tips & Tryouts

1. Clear away spent flower heads from spring flowering bulbs such as hyacinth & daffs. Don't cut away or discard the foliage as it will replace the bulbs energy for its next flowering.

2. If the weather in your area has been dry enough lately and your soil is not wet and heavy, now is the time for some rotavating/digging, adding compost/manure as required to the soil.

3. Air temperatures are still relatively unpredictable in my neck of the woods at present, it may be worth checking the germination temperatures of various seeds before sowing takes place.

4. Easter weekend was the traditional time for getting your potato tubers into the ground. Don't put them into wet soil and remember Easter weekend is early this year so another couple of weeks wait isn't a problem.

5. More overnight frosts have been happening in this part of the country recently, compared to the past few years. So if you are sowing planting this month keep cloches or other plant protection equipment a…
