In October 2008 I got myself a plot at the Lidgett Lane Allotments. It’s been a few years of trial and error, but with some splendid results.
One of my ongoing errors is that I am very bad at keeping track of what works. Were the courgettes corkers in 2009? was that the seed, or the weeding or the weather that made it so? Were the parsnips pathetic in 2011? Might have been the germination time or the soil? Who knows for sure.
So this is an attempt to keep a record of everything I do this year and hopefully, it will make me a wiser grower with bountiful yields. If not, I’ll cope. There is always next year.
