Enjoyed a very pleasant hour or so on the allotment this morning. K sorted out the compost so it’s all in the compost bins now rather than lying messily next to the rhubarb patch, and I did a quick hoe round to keep the weeds more or less under control.
Having looked it up on the web thingy last week, we retrieved the heart of the yacon (Peruvian Ground Apple) from the shed and planted it as instructed back in the ground, though we are still letting the tubers dry out.
Whilst there, I dug up the Crocosmias (Emily McKenzie) as they were wasted on the allotment as they don’t last in the vase when cut. Instead I have planted them at home with my other crocosmias at the front. Hopefully, they’ll be a vision in red and orange next year.
I also harvested some spinach and two beetroots, one red and one golden – here they are with the dug-up crocosmias:
Sadly, when I got home I was confused as I was also sorting the garden out by doing mega-pruning before I lost the light, and I appear to have added the golden beetroot into the garden waste bin by mistake, yikes!! I am officially a Bad Gardener! Next time, I will sort out the harvest BEFORE tacking the garden, eh … Still, at lease we have the red beetroot left and the spinach!
Have a great weekend, all.
