Allotmenticity - 31-12-08 - New Years Eve
A very happy and let's hope prosperous New Year to all.
I had to nip down to No87 to get some herbs and the frost was making everything look fantastic.
I can't believe how the garlic will survive and the kale just tastes wonderful. The recipe from Sod It Grow Your Own is really tasty and was a great hit as a starter over Xmas.
I actually managed to get a couple of visits in before the frost and have dug the spud-bed ready for next year. I'm using the pelleted manure again which seemed to have a great effect. The one thing I've noticed is that I omitted the lawn mowings in the last row of Maris Pipers and they've all got scab. Surely it can't be that effective or even necessary, but the difference is amazing.
Ah well, it's onwards to 2009.
All the best to everyone,
and don't forget to check out Aston FM for some more madness!
