The Allotment Wife

The Wintry Allotment

4 Comments

Our first snowfall came today – which for me was horrific as I utterly HATE snow. It’s the work of the devil, don’t you know. LOL! Anyway, thankfully for us in the south-east of the UK it hasn’t lasted long – or not hereabouts anyway, so K and I still visited the allotment just to see how it was doing.

And it’s all very wintry – as you can see! Here is the overall view:

And here are a couple of close-ups of the beds:

 

I wasn’t expecting to be able to do any hoeing as I thought the soil would be too hard, but in actual fact it was all fairly soft, so we managed a fair weed round – not that there was that many weeds anyway.

K also brought down two bags of compost from home – but we’ll wait until the snow has gone until we actually mulch anything. There was a slight problem with our little trolley – which isn’t that great as it is – as one of the wheels came off, but luckily it was after he’d deposited the compost, so hopefully it’s mendable.

And once more we’ve harvested the sprouts, hurrah:

Harvest

Have a great week, everyone, and happy gardening!
