Allotment planning!

allotment weeding

Right: one reason why this was not as good a year (other than the weather...) was a certain lack of organisation. So this year, we are doing Organised Planning right now!

The idea is to spend this Sunday (Oct 7th) as follows:
11am-ish: go down allotment, lift potatoes, other similar jobs. Poss break out storm kettle.
afternoon: sit round in my house with mugs of tea, biscuits, etc, making decisions about planting things, the Raised Bed Problem, composting issues, etc etc.

Anyone wishing to assist with any of this (or indeed just sit around & drink tea :-) ) is more than welcome!

Things on the list:

  • I had an Idea for in-place composting.
  • How to reorganise the beds so that we can put all the bits of wood down & make them raised beds.
  • What to plant.
  • What to do about the strawberries & when we need to do it.
  • Should we be pruning any of the fruit bushes/canes?
  • Splitting the rhubarb clumps?
  • When To Do Things.
  • Order pear tree?
  • Manure!

Anyone think of anything else?

Bah can't make it - I go home for one long weekend and everything happens at once. Also it's the day after Poptimism so my attendance = shaky at best.

Shd we resurrect the idea of the allotment notebook to keep track of what we do. And actually start keeping track this time.

Shd it be a paper-based piece of Actual Thing, or would a wiki do a better job? Being accessible to all of us most of the time and ting.

bah.. if I actually had a car, I'd be there. I need all the help allotment planning as I can get. Lots of good resources on the web but nothing like planning it out for yourself on paper.
