Sunday On The Allotment - 9 Dec - Winter Is Coming
So - I limited myself to a brief tour of inspection. There is not really much to do for now - my hard work getting the plot in shape over the last few weeks has paid off ....
The tough little plants are still looking strong and healthy - if a little battered by the winds.
Getting their roots down and looking good to survive through Winter and produce some lovely beans next year.
But I've decided that I might as well leave it in the ground for now.
Its still providing some protection for the soil - reducing the amount of nutrients washed out by the Autumn rain.
I'll probably clear it down in January.
As mentioned in a previous post - I was concerned as I'd planted the cloves s a bit deeper this year.
Looks like they'll be ok - although the shoots are looking a bit brown rather than green. Time and nature will tell.
I just need to work out how best to use the rest of the space - and leave some room for a little experimentation.
Can I get some Tobacco seeds on eBay ??
