    Looking good Sean, use any spare poles to make supports for runner beans. After a cuppa of course.

    The fruit cage is looking good, if all my fruit bushes were together I think I'd have a fruit cage. Unfortunately my currants and gooseberries are spread out over my plot… Bad planning when I was a novice gardener, a job for the future I think πŸ€”

    It's only me

    Nice one Sean, looks a very decent size so you should get a bumper crop from now on πŸ‘

    interesting. do you know the measurements? it looks quite big! where do you get the netting? I only ask as, inspired by your idea, I have purchased the frame of an old portable carport. it is aluminum, poles and connections about 10' x 11' by 7.5' high. i thought it might work over my cherry bushes

    Sean, looks like a great day there to be out on the allotment. We here in Nebraska are waiting for the last of the snow to melt away. I like the March snows because they are filled with moisture that all soaks into the freshly thawed soil and snow has good nitrogen in it. I've hooked up the rain water catch tank and have captured about maybe 100 gallons from the rain and melting snow in March. The tank will hold about 400 gallons when full and usually by the end of March it's full or close to it.

    I've taken to growing lettuce and radishes in my basement under grow lights. I've eaten many salads over the Winter from harvests. I may expand that endeavor to year round delightful eating. My onions from seed are looking good and the bell peppers are up and growing nicely. So the gardening year has begun.

    Have a great day on the allotment.

    That's going to be a real bonus when fruit is ripening.

    Sean, the geese always know when spring is coming. I heard them this morning heading north. So to all my friends in the northern parts of the USA, the geese are coming, get ready! PS: that is going to be a wonderful fruit cage. I am betting you will wonder why you didn't do that sooner. Take care.

    Your plot is looking nice and tidy. Have any frogs found your pond yet?
