|St Ives Cornwall - Allotments - February 2017|
I took a break from website and marketing work today - to get away from the computer and out to my allotment. Really enjoyed it.
I walked out across the fields past Hellesveor and out to the site.
Weather was cloudy but dry and relatively mild - so a good chance to get some work done.
The site looked misty and atmospheric - with cloud rolling down from the Penwith Hills.
Spring is definitely "in the air" at the moment - March is less than two weeks away and I'm continuing with plans and preparations for the new season.
Slightly boring but necessary work - and good exercise.
previous post - I don't bother to dig it in - I simply dump it on the beds and rake it around a bit. I'll level it off a bit more in March when its time for sowing and planting.
I focussed on the beds designated for peas and beans this year. Last year they had potatoes which take a lot out of the ground.
Doing their job providing ground cover and adding a bit of nitrogen to the soil. I'll start cutting these down next month and adding them to the compost bin.
I hope to get out to the allotment at least once more this weekend.
Can't wait for Spring and new growing - its been a long Winter!
