Not much to see here
At this time of year for the gardener its pretty weather dependent on what can be done in the garden, the main jobs are preparation jobs like cleaning out pots, Improving your soil by digging in manures & composts, deciding on what to grow for the following season, ordering your seeds & maybe sowing some seeds indoors to get a bit of a head start on the season.
The allotment here is on heavy clay soil and the weather has been really wet for the last month or so after all the frost, which is pretty typical of this time of year. With wet weather and clay soil there isn't really much to do up on the allotment right now.
Those that have been following this blog know that my chilli seedling I planted in January are coming on slowly (more photos in the next few days), but February is still a good month to sow seeds & get a head start if your thinking of planting some chilli seeds. Its also a good time to start off Tomatoes & peppers. Which is exactly what I've done today 12 Faworyt tomatoe seeds have gone into my propergator.
Not much to see at the moment but hopefully within the next few weeks we'll have some tomatoe seedling that will give us an early crop of Tomatoes.
