An Organic Yorkshire Allotment - End of June 2011
The weather in England has been pretty good this year. After a very cold winter we have had a very dry spring. Over the last month or so it has been warm and fairly wet, which has produced perfect growing condtions.
I've made a little video of progress to date. My camera work is not the best. I use one of those little flip cameras and it seems to zoom in too close. I still have problems talking to a camera. I don't think my mouth is connected to my brain properly.
I think June may be one of the best months in the year for produce. At the moment I'm getting strawberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants, redcurrants, potatoes, cabbage, lettuce, calabrese, turnips, peas and onions. I've just made half a gallon of allotment soup, which i will freeze tomorrow.
Well i hope you are having a good growing year in your part of the world. I am now more certain than ever that the secret to success when growing vegetables is to incorporate as much compost as you can get hold of, into the soil in late winter and early spring.
