The Allotment Wife

The Sick Allotmenteer

Leave a comment

There’s been a severe lack of allotmenteering on my part this week due to (a) being sick over the weekend (grrrr) and (b) social engagements during the week. However, K has kept me updated, and it seems as if things are doing well. We had a first harvest of courgettes, plus more runner beans and potatoes, which is great.

Courgettes and runner beans

My lovely husband has also very sweetly kept the flower harvest (sweet peas, spiky cleome and coreopsis mainly) going, and watered the plot wherever possible, so that’s good too. We do appear to be having some issues with our new Peruvian ground apple, which is looking delicate so I hope it recovers soon.

I hope to be well on the way to recovery soon too and plan to pop in to the allotment on Thursday if I’m up to it.

Hope you all have a good week!
