The Allotment Wife

Autumn on the Allotment

Leave a comment

Definitely an autumnal feel in the air on the allotment . K and I visited yesterday – I weeded whilst K watered. We’re not planning to plant anything else as it’s getting too late in the season.

I see my dwarf sunflowers are on their way out now – I deadheaded lots of blooms and there are only 2 or 3 left. That said, the verbena is doing very well, and that lone foxglove is now definitely in bloom – a last gasp before the winter sets in, I imagine. Whilst I’m at church this morning, K plans to go and harvest it so we can admire it in the house – as well as seeing if there’s any decent spinach left worth eating.

Sometime over the next few weeks, I think we’ll cut down the rest of the spinach and give that bed a thorough weed. We don’t want to actually take the spinach out though, as I gather it will come back next year and should give us another good crop. Only time will tell!
