Billy, plants and digging

It has been a great week at the allotment, The weather has been FANTASTIC.

Billy got his update at last, we changed the jeans and denim jacket for a suit, new hat as well, we placed straw around the edges to give the affect of being stuffed with straw, We like him anyway 🙂

I got the broccoli planted out although I have been told by my friend Dave at the allotment that he plants his plants closer together so I will plant another 3 plants in-between these ones.

I put a arch in the entrance and planted a climbing rose next to it, finishing it off with a nice border around the bed. I think that should look nice when the rose bush is fully grown.

I got a border around the Raspberry bush, I will do the same to the blackcurrant and Redcurrant bushes when I get the chance.

Some of last years blackcurrant bushes have grown back so I made a sort of trellis to let it climb up.
