Well 2014 started with the floods not allowing any meaningful work to start until late in the season.
When we were able to start work, the land had been so compacted by all the heavy rain, all the beds needed deep digging again. Hard work but necessary.
2014 was a good growing year with good cropping of almost all the fruit and vegetables. Soft fruit was especially good due to the fine warm summer.
The potatoes again succumbed to a light blight attack but not all was lost this year. Some of the giant pumpkins were a sight to behold!!
All the allotmenteers had a good productive year and the plans for greenhouses, poly tunnels, different crops and various projects, planned over the winter, have started to be implemented.
Come take a look and we are sure you will be impressed with the different styles and methods we all try to get the best out of our plots. Almost certain to be someone there to chat too.
I believe there are still a couple of plots available, if that seems to daunting some folk share half a plot each, that might be a better option for some.
