Welcome to Reads Allotment Retreat.
Just a quick update to let you all know that despite the very stony soil we are now digging through, we are making progress on the plot. We're over halfway on the first 5 rods - in terms of digging / weeding, and we'll soon be starting to construct the raised beds, in time for some autumn planting.
In just a couple of hours this afternoon, i managed to fill an old washing up bowl with stones, and there's plenty more to come out yet. The ground is still very hard, and a few drops of the wet stuff would be more than welcome.
We are still searching through seed lists, and there's a definitive buzz of excitement with every new purchase.
We've also got a few things underway at home, planting seeds into peat pots that can be dug in as and when the ground is ready.
I'm back at the plot tomorrow, so will take my camera with me to get you all a proper update.
Take care all, till then.
