This weeks has been such beautiful weather so our little seedlings are in need of loads of water and buckets of TLC. We have been making regular visits down to the allotment to make sure that our budding green beans will thrive. Yesterday we planted our courgette seedlings in a new bed prepared especially for them. We have been loading on the coffee grinds from back in the clubhouse to act as a deterrent to slugs.

we are also doing a bit of work back at the clubhouse, we have been transplanting little spinaches and cabbages. We will be minding these out in the court yard for the next few days until they are strong enough to grow down at the allotment.
We found some wild mint down at the allotment and decided to try and plant it to grow for us in our raised beds as it is a herb that would be used in salads and cooking back in our kitchen. We potted some of the wild mint that had roots and secured it in a shallow hole. So fingers crossed it will take off!!

The place is really starting to take off, all the seedlings are looking very healthy so we are very hopeful that we will have a full crop in the coming months!
