Hello to everyone,
Came across site yesterday evening, and really enjoyed write ups on moon phase planting.
I have had an allotment for 3yrs. now, and have had reasonable success with crops..but think it will be another 2yrs. or so before I get my plot up to anything like full potential.
Mad
I think we all need as much help as possible...so I am really keen to try moon phasing and see how it go's..!!
I look forward to monitoring the results in eager anticipation. Wink

catch u all soon
MM

Welcome in our midst. I trust you will enjoy posting and keeping us up to date with the progress on your allotment. I have just acquired an allotment as well. Allotments is as scarce as hens teeth in County Meath.

Fair size of an allotment mucky_manc. What you got growing in it besides the onions I can see in the foreground and the courgettes in the plastic? Did you grow anything unusual? A few toms in the glasshouse I'd say.

Hi Janelee..nothin' too exotic..lol. Managed to get asparagus bed set (just beyond netting) and small block of sweetcorn (on right). Unfortunately the glasshouse belongs to Neville my next door neighbour....but I've got my name down for his plot when he retires after this year (83 yrs. young).....and it was full of luvly toms last summer,,!!!

Welcome to the site mucky_manc. Thanks for the advice on the raised beds .Your plot looks huge! Ours is not as big and you have well ordered beds. Pass on any advice you have ,greatly appreciated. You have a great history on allotments in the UK. We have asparagus too and looking forward to this year as it is the 3rd year and we can actually harvest it instead of watching it go to seed.
