So now is the time to get ahead with the jobs that need doing and can be done now.
Soon it will be the planting and tending the seedlings and keeping the weeds in check time of year. Then any tasks not done now, well I will wish that I had done them when I had the time and chance to. This is especially true when I think of how the weather has played tricks in the last couple of years, sometimes making extra trips with watering cans an added chore and time consumer.
I have a plan drawn up of what will be planted or sown on the plot and where it will go. This is important for the crop rotation plan that needs to be worked from. It is also important to make sure we have enough plant labels to use in the seed trays as well as on the allotment. It is an on going failing of mine to lose such things and then regret not putting labels on the plants properly.
- You can buy plant labels or make your own plant labels.
- Plant labels can be made- by cutting up white or light coloured plastic bottles into suitable sized strips. They are fiddly to make but not difficult.
More words to be added soon, on what we are planning and doing on the allotment.
