Welcome To Allotment Gardening In North Essex.
Video tutorials and recipes from my allotment garden including allotment blogs
Have a Great New Gardening Year for 2020.
The day to day activities that take place on the allotment are recorded here and they go back too 2006 which can be found in the achieve section ( archive section still to be made responsive). The Blog section also contains a Calendar of Allotment tasks that can be completed during each month. As of January 2016 I have also added my personal plan of action to be achieved each month.
This section is in three parts:
- Part one “Allotment Tours” shows a monthly tour of the allotment starting in 2013 when I redesigned the allotment to start using the Square Foot Gardening method.
- The second section “At Home In The Kitchen” contains Recipes that I have recorded on video. In most cases the main ingredient of each recipe has been grown and harvested from the allotment.
- The Third section “From The Allotment Shed” contains information that you may find useful including planting guides general trips and tricks on planning and running an allotment.
This section deals with my planning process and shows details of what, how and where I am going to grow my crops each year, and also what actually was planned and where it was planted. To help with this I use an online planning programme called ” Grow Veg.com Garden Planner” Here you will also find the planting times, seed and plant lists that will or have been used.
This last section gives an out line of me, where my allotment is situated and an overview of the allotment. You will also find some useful links and any reference materials that I use.
