Allotment geekery

It has been approximately four weeks since we were last at the allotment, the weather has been either too wet or too cold to be digging out weeds.  I assumed the plot would be an absolute jungle but actually it really wasn't that bad...

I've never grown broad beans before so I'm chuffed with these little beauties.

The garlics are finally making a show, I was surprised last year by how long garlics took to grow so this year I've staggered the planting of them as well as planting loads of them!

Project raised bed continues, we're slowly filling it with compost and top soil ready for the onslaught.

Ok, does anyone know how long celeriac takes to grow?  We bought these last summer and they haven't done much ever since we put them in the raised bed, they don't look unhealthy so I don't want to dig them out but jeeeeez!

  1. Looking good! I would have expected the celeriac to have grown a lot bigger by now and be showing a bit above the soil? But I'm only going on what I've seen other people grow, I've never done it myself! Very intriguing!
