Allotment planting is under way again

After our brief absence on our Suffolk jaunt, Saturday’s weather remained kind to allow more tilling and planting. The chickens benefited from the uprooted remains of the purple sprouting broccoli:

The Honda F220 rotavator continues to be a boon. The space being rotavated here is reserved for sweetcorn:

We’ve put out the spinach seedlings next to the rhubarb on the new plot.

And Jean has also planted onion sets (under the black plastic in the foreground), and onion seedlings.

We’ve not tried growing onions from seed before, so we shall see how they progress. Certainly today’s rain will have encouraged them!
