Just had an amazing afternoon at the allotment! Thanks to a friend, my daughter was picked up from school and has no doubt been having a wonderful time playing with her friend while I have had some much valued me time. Of course, I could have stayed there longer, given half a chance, but best to save some energy for tomorrow, eh?
Anyway, after clearing more ground to make sure the Easy Tunnel I bought a couple of months ago had enough space, I finally put it up. Yippee! Oh, but it is smaller than I had anticipated… Still, it will be useful for starting off my brassicas (cabbage and cauliflower) while they are most vulnerable to birds and butterflies, so I’m not going to cry about the shortness in stature.
As a by-the-by, I also determined what the unnamed crop I recently noticed coming up might be: coriander. Great – would like to plant some more and knowing that it works on Wonder World, I will try some more tomorrow.
Last but not least, I had had a plan to put some jacket potatoes in the slow cooker before I set out today. Unfortunately, they had started to sprout, so now they have been planted next to the rhubarb. It can’t do any harm 🙂
