It was really quiet down the allotment this morning, in fact there was only me and one other chap there.
The day before I had been to Simpson’s Nursery near Newmarket with my parents and Grandpa and having looked at all the plants there (but wisely had left my purse at home!) I decided to go and buy some peas and strawberry plants on the way down.
I did some digging over and a lot of weeding and then popped my strawberry plants in near my currant bushes. I’ve put cloches on them to provide a little bit of protection – it’s still chilly at night and I don’t want them to die. It’s probably a little early for them to be out at all but I’m pretty impatient.
Peas have gone in to the fruit cage, and then I’ve taken my chances with 2 more tepees without mouse/bird protection. Fingers crossed they’ll be ok. I’m hoping the ones in the raised planter will be a little bit sheltered by the tulips and daffodils for the time being.
That’s all for Easter Saturday – Have a lovely day 🙂
