Making The Bed

I’m still playing around with the perfect layout for my plot. Last year I tried 4ft beds going across the plot. These seemed a bit narrow so this year I went for 5ft beds which fitted perfectly along the plot, which also takes advantage of the slight south slope.

Tabula Rasa In Action

The new year begins and we practice patience, waiting for the perfect time to prepare the soil for the year ahead. Too much rain and the allotment turns into a bog, too little and the heavy clay becomes concrete.
