The weather might've turned awful again, but here in East Anglia, we've had practically no Winter... So I've been down to the allotments we did manage to get our mitts on, and have been planting:
- Garlic - Solent Wight (actually planted these in December)
- Onions - red and white embarrassingly, I've already forgotten which varieties, planted in February)
- Potatoes - first and second earlies (Winston and Maris Peer)
It's extremely hard work. The ground is heavy clay, and it's full of weed and grass. So, I've bought some phacelia, a green manure, to cover most of the allotment until it needs to be dug over.
