Plan Bee

Plot Plan

So… plan bee… I call it plan bee because when I picked up my seed order last month, it appeared I had the little pollinating marvels on my mind! I’d bought so many flower seed and hardly any veg seeds 🙂 Not that I’m complaining though 🙂 It’s going to be a pretty sight in the summer and I’ll be bee watching to my hearts content! 🙂

Seed orderWe’ll be planting our usual veg for christmas 🙂 sprouts, parsnips, carrots, broccoli, caulis etc.  We’re going to try globe artichokes so I can sit and look at the bumbles, honeybees busy collecting pollen!

Globe Artichockes and bees

The little green storage/greenhouse had been battered over the last couple of years by the wind and the rain.  We’re replacing it with a fab hive shaped wooden composter.  I’m going to use it as a storage bin for plant pots, hosepipe etc and it will be painted in duck egg blue 🙂

Our willow edges are looking a bit tired so I’ll be replacing them around our bug lane, where I’ll have wild flowers coming out of my ears. Herbs and salads I plan to grow at home so I can pick them fresh for my tea 🙂

Summer Evening

It’s going to be a good year, I can feel it! I hope we get a lovely warm summer like last year.  Spending hot summer evenings watering the plot and enjoying a glass of wine will be great 🙂 Bring it on!

Are you making any major plans this year?

  1. That plan is gorgeous! It looks better than my actual allotment 😕
    I have globe artichokes – they are well worth growing and very easy to maintain. I grow them with my tulips because they get VERY big in summer, but by then the tulips are over. When you harvest them, watch out for earwigs though… They use the heads as penthouse suites!
