Not very hard work
Well, it’s better late than never to watch a professional Spinach sower at work…
Things are getting tough down at the Wonderpost allotment; not only is the Sun shining, but the horses are having to do a bit of weeding. This is all good because judging by the looks of those Onions and Garlic plants something is going well.
Perhaps this is just another example of teenage ingenuity? you know the old saying “you can lead a horse to the allotment, but you can’t make it weed”, it’s not true as you can see.
And don’t forget the Wonderpost allotment is 100% powered by Wonderpost Farm Fresh Compost – the 100% Natural Soil Improver now available in nice big bulk bags.
Neville explains what we’re doing with our allotment, splitting the ground into two halves, one with Wonderpost and one without, and some interesting facts about Wonderpost Soil Improver.
After testing the allotment soil PH Roger filled up the bucket on the telehandler with a shed load of Wonderpost soil improver and dumped it in a big pile in the middle of the allotment. With one of those large landscaper rakes, I set about spreading it across half of the plot, trying to achieve a coverage of between 5 – 10kg per square metre. I’m not sure how accurate my spreading technique was but I thought “gardening is all about experimenting so what’s the worst that can happen if I have spread it too thick”!
