My new plot

Hello All
I have got a new Lottie plot
We have dug 3 beds so far and it is will take at least another 3 weeks to finish digging it as we only have a couple of Saturday and Sundays to work on it.

As you can see in the top photo we have already planted some things it.

This is the 1st bed we dug and we got about 8 lb of spuds out of it.  we have got lots of weeds to get rid of but what is new for any plot owner.

If you look closely you can just about see a line of string from the bottom right of the photo above to about half way across and then it goes back to the back of the plot.  This is going to be the spud bed for next year.  It needs a lot of digging and weeding but it will give us lots of spuds for next year.

In this part of the plot we have planted 80 onions, both red and white varieties that aer winter hardy. We also planted some pansies, cinerarria.  Not only will it give me some colour but it also helps me remember where I planted some things hehehehehe.

As you can see I have a shed, 2 water barrels and a compost bin.

I will keep you all updated as to what is happening.
