A nice pootling kind of a morning at the allotment today. We hoed round and made sure everything was okay, as far as possible. I was expecting a little more from the sweet peas we planted last week but they’ve not done very much so far:
However, on the plus side, the tulips are still doing their best, and even the daffodils are hanging on in there:
It’s really the lilies which are putting on something of a growth spurt, and the gladioli are poking their heads up a little more too:
On the veggie front, we’re pleased with the rhubarb, the asparagus and the spinach, and had enough of the latter two to take as part of our harvest, hurrah!
Meanwhile, the autumn raspberries and gooseberry have plenty of foliage which is good news.
Here’s the harvest we gathered, which includes leeks too – and it’s odd as they really make my eyes sore even from just having them in the car, which hasn’t happened before – the soreness lasted all afternoon and has only just gone, so goodness knows what that is about! I LOVE leeks! K suggested wearing a gas mask next time we harvest the leeks, but I don’t think it’s a good look, LOL!
Finally, here are the tulips in their vases at home.
Have a great bank holiday weekend!
