Allotment Diary–Wednesday 15 June 2016
Started to feel a bit better today, so I very slowly turned my third compost bin, into my second empty bin, adding greens and chicken manure and water as I went, it’s already had one hot period of composting back in April, but hopefully this will give it another burst of heat and finish it off.
Since I’m recovering from a flare it took twice as long, but was three times as rewarding to finish.
Next I cropped a row of radish and planted a row of radicchio in it’s place, this is one of a new set of seeds that I’ve been inspired to get since reading Eating On The Wild Site, which is full of information on the most nutritionally dense fruit and veg.
I also cropped leaves, beans, peas, radish, strawberries and chives for Debbie’s salad:
and onion tops, chives, radish, radish tops, sprouts, kale, and various oriental lettuces for my smoothie mix – note mine is in a wok!
