Mid April plot

I'm dividing my exercise allowance between going on country walks from the door and spending time on my allotment where I took some photos this morning while the light was good.

Plot plan 2020

The allotments with Morecambe Bay beyond

Loooking up my plot from the field track

Some greenery after a warm spell but with very little rain recently

Dalek city

Broad bean and potato shoots are beginning to emerge under the thermacrop covers

Looking down the plot

Overwintered chard re-emerging after being cut down and mulched over winter - I need to keep chard netted in order to protect it from the sparrows

Cledor garlic sown on 19th March is doing well

Longor shallot sets planted in late October 2019

Loganberry and fruit bushes - the ones in pots need to find a home in the soil

Last year's first sowing of chard overwintered and mulched

I'm happy to let this tall variety of autumn raspberries spread in the bottom corner of the plot

Lots of self seeded Hellebores to increase my collection ,and the Polyanthus and Pulmonaria which I divided up last year are putting on a good show.

Gozo coastal walk and inland diversions March 2020

I've been to Malta once before in 2011 which included a day trip to Gozo so this time I decided to base myself on this smaller less hectic island. Little did I know when booking my flight and accommodation back in early February that my March trip would take place on the cusp of normality and daily life becoming dominated by coronavirus.....at least for the next few months?
