January & February

This year has been the opposite of last year when the snow was on the ground all the way through to March.

With the first snow coming early in November and lying through to the end of the year, the late 2010 work and harvesting did not take place. Thankfully we had a mild spell in January and February which allowed tidying up to take place as well as harvesting carrots, parsnips, leeks, onions, horseradish and Jerusalem artichokes.

Some digging and ground preparation took place including weeding, preparing and repair of raised beds, planting of garlic, maintaining compost heaps and the spreading of dung.

A presentation on the Allotments was given to the Ward Forum in Dulnain Bridge Hall and details of presentation can be viewed via the link on the left.
