Plot 32A was A Plot of Two Halves but now we only have the one half….

Fruit Cage with Fruit!!!

Gosh, it seems as the last post was months ago.  Oh it was!  In January to be precise.

It’s not that we haven’t been to the plot.  It’s just that I have blogged about it!

So, it’s about time we put that straight.

The weekend just gone, we went to have a tidy up on the plot and plant some fruit bushes that we bought.

We got 2 black current bushes and two goose berry bushes, half price.

The fruit cage is currently 8ft x 16ft but is going to be extended to 24ft long.

The bushes have shoots on them so need to be planted.

As the cage isn’t netted yet, we wanted to protect the plants from possible disturbance so the two black currents were covered and the goose berries have buckets to show their position.

I also started to weed the area where the extra 8ft is going to go but there is still a pot to do!!

The two tree’s in the image are doing well, with buds all over them!

Alison also planted loads of seeds at home so we now have little seedlings to look forward to!

Stay tuned folks.  Spring is here and summer is not far away!!
