May 2011 Allotment Diary

Spring; pictures and the Allotment Diary

As the days get longer the wild animals become more and more active. The birds are singing and building nests.
Another thing that happens in spring is that animals have babies. We don’t have room on our allotment for a flock of sheep, but we couldn’t resist putting in a photo of cute lambs with their mummy!
We have dug in an awful lot of manure over the last month, very good exercise as long as you look after your back.
The tadpoles have hatched and are now scattered throughout the pond. It is very exciting to watch them.
In the greenhouse we have made a raised bed out of bricks for the tomatoes and cucumbers.
