Last week the visitors to the allotment  didn't like how it looked, so they rearranged it for me.

Weather is warming up ( at long last) so the threat of the dreaded potato & tomato blight won't be far behind.
Don't forget to sign up to the Potato Councils Blight Watch scheme.

A musical interlude, most gardeners get these at some time ;)

Things seem to be catching up on the allotment, despite the still cool weather conditions. As always the weeds are making the most of the conditions, but they should have their comeuppance this weekend, if the plan comes together.

Plum blossom is out, just in time for the frosts this weekend. May be another year with no fruit.

Things are really slow to get going on the allotment, but at least I was able to get most of the preparations finished of this weekend.
