The Allotment Wife

The week before the Allotment Show

Leave a comment

No, before you ask – we’re not entering anything into the Allotment Show. We’re way too new! Though we will go along on Friday and see how things are. It will be great to meet more people, and I’m always keen on getting any tips as we need all the help we can get for sure. Plus there’s a cheese & wine evening afterward so that sounds good too.

Anyway, today K and I weeded and watered the allotment, and K took out the French beans (which are basically over) and planted peas and leeks instead. He also planted more beetroot, as we’re really enjoying that, so hopefully they should work okay.

Today’s harvest included everlasting spinach, the last few of those French beans and two beetroots. We ate the spinach for lunch, but I’ll do the beetroot and the beans tomorrow.

Gorgeous weather today too, so it was a pleasure to be out there.
