A good couple of hours down the allotment today, with help from the mother (thanks, @any_major_dude). Swipe to see a before pic!  #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #allotmentnewbies #livingofftheland #gardening #vegetablegarden #allotment
Silverbeet 🥬 begging to be  picked today . Some of them are starting to seed. I will leave one to seed and the rest will be picked, ready for my neighbours veggie boxes. #silverbeet #nourishyourbody #mygarden #wangaratta
More radishes sliced and ready for pickling, you could say I’m a bit addicted now. They are by far the easiest vegetable I’ve grown and definitely the most plentiful. Delicious on salads! Any other ideas for eating them with food? . . . . . #gardening #garden #lovemygarden #flowers #gardener #allotment #beautiful #gardeninggeek #gardeningideas #sunshine #horticulture #gardenofthegods #gardenersofinstagram #gardenersworld #mygarden #organicgardening #gardenideas #gardenstyle #vegan #herbs #gardendesign #gardenersworld #selfsustainable #greenfingers #allotmentlife #thegardeninggeek #gardeninspiration

I love everything about @realseeds there ethos is brilliant, i love reading the descriptions and stories about the amazing varieties that they sell, be sure to check them out, more tomatoes added to the collection for next season 🙈 #allotment #allotments #allotmentlife #allotment #allotmentgarden #allotmenteer #allotmentdiary #gyo #grow #growing #grower #growyourown #growyourownfood #growyourownveggies #garden #gardens #gardener #gardening #gardenlife #gardeninglife #gardeninguk #ediblegarden #kitchengarden #organic #organicgrowing #nodig #gardenorganicuk #gardenorganic
So yesterday whilst sorting the garden out I found a box of forgotten hyacinth bulbs, and they’d already started sprouting! Random rummaging for odd pots lying around and a bit of soil and hey presto looking forward to spring (and hoping they’ll forgive me for the neglect!) 👩‍🌾🌱🌷 . . . #bulbs #hyacinth #flowers #garden #gardening #bulb #springflowers #love #instagood #plants #tulips #spring #beautiful #daffodils #springbulbs #gardengeek #gardening #growyourown #allotmentlife #growsomethinggreen  #allotmentlove #gardenersworld #urbangardenersrepublic  #urbangardening #nature #allotment #thegoodlife #thehappygardeninglife #everyonecangrowtheirown #flowerpower
Plant blueberries this winter for an attractive addition to the fruit garden. With pretty white flowers, delicious, nutritious berries and fiery autumn foliage, these acid soil-loving plants provide constant interest. They look fabulous in a big pot - make sure they're handy for picking those tasty blueberries to put on top of your morning cereal😊 ⠀ #fruit #growfruit #growyourownfruit #lovefruit #eatmorefruit #blueberries #growberries #loveberries #healthyberries #eatberries #instafruit #gardenlife #allotmentlife #lovegrowing #gardening #patiogardening #patiofruit #gyo #growyourown
Homegrown parsnips, broccoli and carrots gracing tonight’s dinner plate! I love that it’s December but still over half of our meal is fresh from the plot. #growyourown #eatyourown #allotmentlife #nodig
This corner of the garden has received the least attention by far... But it now has a rose arch! Next time I'm in the garden in daylight it might even get some roses. Hopefully it will be a cut flower garden by spring... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #garden #gardening #allotment #allotmentlife #plotlife #rose #rosearch #vegan #vegansofig #gardenplanning #nature #gardendesign #plants #growyourown
You know how much I'm taken in by straight lines of veg?  Well, here's the autumn planted garlic giving me my hit.  But it's not just the straight lines stiring my soul right now. It's simply that this is growth and at this time of year I could stand and stare at this scene for hours.  Chances are I'd get wet and possibly a little chilly too. But it would be worth it.  I plant my garlic in the middle of October. It never fails me. I've probably tempted fate right there.. The chances are this will hold now. The winter will stall the growth above the ground but below the roots will enjoy a little bit of expansion. Garlic is a hardy thing and so I never worry whatever the winter throws at me. And we all know how variable it can be. But with roots making headway, when the spring finally arrives the garlic will romp away and the long season of growth means I should get a good size bulb on each.  I've grown more garlic this year. I adore the stuff. I'm feeling the pinch in the kitchen. We use the pungent bulb many times a week and I'm starting to get a little low on last year's crop already. That'll learn me! . . . . . #allotment #veggiepatch #growyourown #homegrown #kitchengarden #sustainable #garlic #allotmentlife #gyo #epicgardening  #growyourownfood #organicgardening
This is the weekends progress on the l new plot. All levelled. Concrete slab with border ready for greenhouse that was ordered today. (6 weeks wait while they make it!) Raised beds roughly marked out so I could lay type 1 over a weed membrane. There will be nice finishing stone on top when soils in beds. The beds are going to be 2 or maybe 3 oak sleepers in depth and all exactly uniform for my ocd. All these sleepers will be removed to cut to exact size before refitting. If a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I have a sleeper wall to build over the next few weeks at the far end too and make a cut flower border there...... Brilliant progress this weekend with company. Now back to me on my own during lunch breaks and the odd hour at weekends but it will all be ready for the main growing season to kick off. #allotmentlife #allotments #growyourown# growyourownfood #allotment
🌶🌶I AM SO EXCITED!! As it says on the Rocoto seed packet: jet black seeds..... ...FAB-U-LOUS  Seeds glorious seeds(pic 3) . . 😱oh and I should have worn gloves when scrapping the seeds. . . naughty, naughty🤦‍♀️ . oh btw: chilli will get used in 'tandoori style' chicken wings at the weekend, and no, tandoori chicken or ANYTHING made in a 'tandoor' or tandoor style, should come out bright red!!🙏
Babies ☺️🌸 I don't always lift gladioli but in this case there are far too many weeds to leave them for next year. I love the way they reproduce by making baby corms called cormels which will in a few years produce flowers #gladioli #flowersofinstagram #plantreproduction #babies #getyourhandsdirty #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #growyourown #greenfingers #everyonecan #urbangardener #allotmentgardener #allotmenteer #devonallotment

Managed to get the golden/red raspberries transplanted at the weekend. All the beds are finally taking shape... just need to weed (couch grass and bind weed) the 2 beds where the fruit previously lived.... should be ready for spring! #allotmentlife #allotment #allotmentlove #allotmentsunited #raspberries #growyourownfood

Wow! I received over 11,000 likes in 2018! I know it isn't about that, but when I started this little page nearly a year ago I would never have thought that so many people would be interested!

It’s nice to get a bit of green on the allotment, my ‘apple blossom’ clematis has been planted ready to climb its way up the arch!

No one needs that much mint in their life right? Time to get my hands dirty 👍
#repost @nikijabbour with @make_repost ・・・ With December now here it’s time to add an extra layer of protection over the crops in my polytunnel. I made simple wire hoops and topped them with a layer of Agribon row cover. It’s amazing how much of a difference this makes and I will now be harvesting hardy greens all winter long! Even in my zone 5 garden ❄️🌱😃 Do you have any season extending structures in your garden? . . . . . . #lovegardening #growwhatyoueat #allotmentlife  #instagardeners #ediblegarden #garden #gardening #mygarden #allotment #growyourownfood #homegrown #homegarden #raisedbeds #backyardgarden #vegetablegarden #organicgardening #urbangarden #gardenlife #greenthumb #gardenlove #growyourown #video #timelapse #polytunnel #greenhouse #winter #coldframe #crazyplantlady #plantlover
I thought I’d do a little post today about my strawberry experiment this year -Complete with a picture by picture walk through as I’m really pleased with how they’ve turned out!  I bought a strawberry plant from the garden centre back in the summer, it gave me a few beautiful strawberries but then was left wilted beyond repair with the excruciatingly hot summer we had. The last remaining strawberry I stripped of it’s seeds and dried it out on some kitchen roll. Spreading the seeds into my windowsill propagator, I left them to germinate. MONTHS went by, and I finally gave up and decided to get rid so I could propagate something else, I took off the lid and noticed the tiny little leaves of a germinated plant 🌱 absolutely buzzing, I left them be, and gradually they got stronger and stronger and more plants grew. Which takes us to now (last picture) of my two strong little plants. I’m fully expecting them to make no fruit, or for the fruit to be completely different to the mother plant (of which I’ve forgotten the variety 🙄), but whatever I get I know I’ll feel - great sense of satisfaction due to how much effort I’ve put in.

My office this afternoon. Nobody around unless you include a passing ginger cat!  #allotmentlife #organicveggies #growyourown #growyourownfood #vegtables #allotment #beetroot #leeks #carrots
Just time to do a few quick repairs and check on the bees today. Don’t think I’m likely to get a proper allotment session in until the new year at this rate but everything is ticking along!  #allotment #myallotment #thegoodlife #allotmentlife #growyourown #plottoplate #yorkshireallotment #homegrown  #kitchengarden #vegetablegarden #downtheplot #gyo #garden  #gardening #selfsufficient
The rosemary is full of little ladybirds hiding away for the winter. I love that they’re hanging out on the plot still.

Busy afternoon at the allotment - preparing for the spring. #allotmentlife #growyourown
10.12.18 Another day of clearing. Decided to remove some of the wooden boarders so I don't get stuck in the current layout of the plot and so I can create the space that's right for me.  Lots of work still to be done but the soil is in good condition and easy to work with. Using my new @spearandjackson carbon steel digging fork and spade made easy work of the tougher ground. #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #allotments #allotmentlove #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlife #allotmentblog #jeppwoodallotment
09.12.18: The clearing up has started. Lots to sort and clear but pleased to get started. #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #allotment #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #allotmentblog #allotments #jeppwoodallotment

I'm pleased I went to my little patch of land this morning, it was just what I needed, although there's not a lot to do there at the mo, it was just lovely being there, so peaceful, but SO cold, filled all the bird feeders up, the frog pond hadn't frozen over, YET, even though my greenhouse had....Little Spring bulbs are already trying to go for it, I told them firmly, GET BACK TO BED.....plus some crazy gorgeous Winter skies today #soulreplenished . . . #winterskies #clouds #springbulbs #frozengreenhouse #outdoors #winter #nature #allotment #allotmentlife #growyourown #greenhouse #garden #flowers #vegtablegarden #urbangarden #myhappyplace #boho #myhaven #mygardentoday #garden #gardening #gardentherapy #newcastleupontyne

Paying a visit to Plot 6 for a last look this year. A handful of little flower sprouts to harvest, plus cavolo nero and chard. Hardly been here for the last few weeks and missed it. One of the highlights of 2018 for me, taking on this bramble covered plot and transforming into my happy place. Itching for Jan when I’ll start planning next years #plot6adventures #allotmentlife #ediblegarden
Another angle, planning where to start.. going to get the shed cleared out first I think so I can have a seat ready for my son then I can get stuck in... I didn’t peek in the compost bin yesterday so not sure if it can be moved or not, I reckon I’ll start a bed at a time and just get stuck in. I’m self employed and it’s taking all my willpower to finish my to do list for today in the house - it’s not raining and I want to jump in the car and get started 🌿
Nein, das ist keine vernachlässigte, zum Tode verurteilte & ungeliebte Zimmerpalme. Das ist mein Ingwerpflänzchen😄 Die Ingwerpflanze wird nun langsam gelb. Das heißt: Zeit für die Ernte😍👏🏼 Außerdem sprengt die Knolle eh schon fast den Topf😱 Zeit ist es nun auf jeden Fall. Ich bin gespannt, was daraus geworden ist.

Christmas has arrived early!!!! Just got my first seed order for next year. I'll be growing these (swipe to see varieties) at home next year... a mixture of Bush and Vine tomatos, French beans and radish, all ordered from @realseeds - We'll be doing a separate order for the allotment... hopefully in the next week or so.  #allotmentsuk #allotments #allotment #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #urbanfarm #urbangarden #growyourown #gyo #organicfood #foodforfree #cheltenham #gloucestershire #heritageseeds #heirloomtomatoes #seeds #realseedcatalogue
Ok.... so these might not look that different from the last pictures..... but....what I know, that you don’t... is that planted somewhere on what was an overgrown patch of land two months ago are broad beans & bulbs ready for Spring.

WEEK 50: Slow News Weeks.  As the days in December hit double figures we arrive at a couple of slow news weeks. Much hasn't changed from the previous updates but here is an update anyway.  We must take one last opportunity to remind you that the VERY LAST of our winter #pansies are on offer. They are scruffy, they need trimming before planting, but they will be fine, plus they are 4-boxes (48 #plants) for £10.  Also we only have a few mini #cyclamen left. There will be no more this year once current stock is sold.  We have one last delivery of #roses scheduled for this week. This will include a slightly better range of 80cm standards. We expect the range of bush/climbing cultivars to improve slightly by late January 2019.  Loose #seed stock has been ordered for January when, alongside the arrival of #seedpotatoes, we will initiate our #looseseeddeli experiment. You will be able to choose from a range of the larger seed #vegetable cultivars. Some will be sold by weight & some per seed. Most will either be from our usual loose selection, NEW cultivars, top performers or #organic varieties. Most you WILL NOT find in packet selections.  The cover picture this morning is an adult #nandina domestica (AKA Sacred bamboo), which isn't actually a bamboo at all. Often they do not #berry until relatively adult. This £159.99 specimen is laden.  That is all for this update folks. Stay warm as temp's are due to dip this week and... Happy dreaming of #gardening ;-) #clockhousenursery #enfield #garden #shrubs #perennials #allotment #allotmentlife #gyo
