Just a quickie to keep you up-to-date with what’s growing in the allotment at the moment. It took a hammering from the snow in July and we’ve been so preoccupied with home improvements that it has been sorely neglected since. However, we have just had two new, snow-proof steel frames made by a wonderful man called Hans in Mooi River. He installed them early this week and today we put up the shade cloth. So now it’s all systems go with preparing new beds and planting our summer crop of veggies. It’s a bit late for the spring veggies now but we have had some asparagus and artichokes, and the broad beans have just kept on coming, even after they were squashed flat by the snow.
