  1. Sean, wow, that’s a lot of different things. You’re really going hog wild with the new allotments. it will be interesting to see it all come to life.

    Have a great day playing with your sweet peas.

    We’re having a blizzard here in Nebraska. There’s about three inches of really wet snow and it’s still snowing.

      Only had a few hours of snow here but it didn’t stay long. Just dull and grey, could do with at least one day of sunshine.

      • Just compared your list with mine. I’m growing a number of the same veggies as you. I’ll be growing only heirloom veggies this year as I love the diversity and flavor far more than others. I’m located in the States and will love to compare my future harvest with yours. Please do take care of yourself! (and Mr Rusty)

  2. Woah,that would be way too many paths and bed edges for me to maintain.Good luck x

  3. Fantastic, and loads of flowers too. You put my plot to shame! (Don’t forget the garlic, it looked impressive last year)

  4. I completely have allotment envy, but this will be my first full year of my new garden, so I’m raring to get it going and make it the most productive one yet. Can’t wait to see how the Railway Garden turns out. Thanks for sharing.
