Brave Decisions & water conservation

Sweetcorn interplanted with butternut squash.
As you can see I have built a "wall" around them to keep the water in the area

These are baby sweetcorn which can be planted in rows, again within a "wall" to conserve water

The canes are ready for the dwarf french beans

and the first lot of beans are put out on the plot

Inside the Greenhouse the 3 lots of 3 varieties of Tomatoes have been potted on

Back outside on the plot - a last minute "gift" of Primo Cabbages - i found a space next to the baby sweetcorn and Junior's plot for them to go in (running out of space)

My brave decision - to plant out the 3 lots of 3 varieties of Tomatoes - The yellow you can see are yellow pots that I have sunk into the ground by each plant to conserve water.

To the left of the picture are my courgettes & marrows - all under cloches and all "walled"

I spend 90% of my time at the allotment, watering my plot and little else these days as we haven't had rain for over 2 months now!

Looking good Ali. Nice time of year this when the allotment starts filling up.
