Allotment Diaries – March 30th 2017

One of the things I’m looking forward to about our Grand Adventure is taking a boring and uninspiring patch of land and creating greater biodiversity on it, encouraging wildlife in all sorts of forms. So it was nice at the allotment today to see a few signs of returning biodiversity in what has previously been a muddy spludge. A quick survey today spotted bees, butterflies, hover flies, ladybirds, and an awful lot of spiders having a party in the bottom of the cold frame.

The broad beans are flowering (that’s where the butterflies are hanging out) and Chris and I planted a salad bed – lettuce, radishes and quick-growing spring greens all went in, so let us (haha!) see what happens there!
