Plans for next year

So once again I haven’t made it down to the allotment thus I have decided to start planning for next year so I can finally stay on top of things.

Question is – where to start?

I usually start by drawing up a list of things I want to grow then get all muddled with when to plant so I intend to use a planner to help. I should also draw up a list of jobs to do and enlist long suffering Fiona to help.

List of jobs:

Repaint shed (urgent!)

Repair greenhouse frame (urgent!)

Clean all greenhouse glass and clear out all rubbish

Make a raised bed for herb garden

Make a raised bed for rhubarb 

Lay woodchip down on new chicken coop

Rescue blueberry,  raspberry and black currant bushes from the bottom plot

Clear out all old strawberry plants and replace with two different types

Clear out shed and tidy

Buy small fruit cage and assemble

(It has just occurred to me that much of this can be done over the winter…)

Things to grow:
Potatoes (3 varieties usually) 

Onions (two varieties) 

Runner beans

Field beans

Peas

Turnip

Parsnip 

Carrot (maybe…) 

Broccoli 

Lettuce 

Tomatoes 

Cucumber 

Chilli peppers (cayenne?)

Bell peppers

Aubergines

Garlic 

Blueberries 

Raspberries 

Strawberries 

Lingonberries 

Black currant 

Red currant 

Apples

Pears

Cherries (if the tree is big enough) 

Apricots (buy tree)

Almonds (buy tree)

Another fruit tree (decide then buy!)

Cabbage

Pumpkin 

Courgettes

Marrow?

Chard

Kale?
I am sure I will add to this list in the coming weeks. Please comment if you have any tips or additions!

      1. Sadly the pretty ones didn’t fit me, so I just got plain green ones. Saved £13 though, which according to Mr Craft will buy us a lot of strawberry plants! Have fun with the welly rack. 😊
