Self-Sufficient in Suburbia: April 2013
This is the latest programme from the allotment: it's April 2013 and the month starts in winter weather conditions. Planting is delayed but when the sun arrives, the bees get active. New drainage is dug to avoid a repeat of the sort of floods we had last year but we have had so little rain during April that the drains were barely tested. Meanwhile, we want to increase our stock of soft fruit bushes so cuttings were made and planted up in the greenhouse.
