Great excitement and rejoicing at the allotment today, as the first of the daffodils are finally out, hurrah! So I can truthfully say that, like last year, our cut flowers display started from February. Don’t they look lovely in the vase? 🙂
I think the tulips might be a tad bigger than last week, but it’s hard to tell and anyway far too early for them.
Over in the soft fruit area, the autumn raspberries are forging ahead with enthusiasm.
However, our leeks are still thin and weedy, alas – soon we will harvest one or two and see if they’re worth struggling over. I fear not!…
The spinach is looking rather bedraggled too, but I took a handful and also the last of the beetroot:
This leaves us with two-and-a-half free beds, well gosh – so we will have to try to think of something to put in them. Maybe some winter lettuce? Will have to see.
Our harvest today was two sprout plants, the beetroot, spinach and the daffs:
Have a great weekend!
