I picked another three daffodils during the week, one of them one of the larger variety, and they do look good in their vase in the dining room. This weekend, K is busy building the stage set for the village play so I went down to the allotment on my own this morning, and have spent about an hour and a half hoeing the beds and hand-weeding the autumn raspberries. The soft fruit area is doing pretty well, with blackcurrants and raspberries coming along.
Meanwhile, the rhubarb is going for it and actually has leaves – so it’s a mountain! Well, almost, anyway …
I also harvested some more winter lettuce which we can have during the week.
The really exciting news – for a flower girl like me – is that there are more Asiatic lilies showing themselves now, and even one lone and very red-looking Astilbe, goodness me indeed!
I also met the Allotment treasurer and had a very fine chat about allotments, raspberries and the joys of travel, which was great fun!
