The Allotment Wife

Bounteous Harvest

5 Comments

The allotment is really getting going for the summer now. I popped in during the week to pick some flowers and check the asparagus, which is doing well, and came away with this harvest:

The potatoes we planted in their pots last week are also starting to grow:

Today, we’ve spent more time there, hoeing and tidying up, and K has planted the onions:

There’s good news on the beetroot front too – they were looking a bit fragile last week but they appear to have cheered up this week, so we’re hoping for a good crop later.

Ooh, and the mangetouts have their first pods, plus the flowers are fabulous!

Here is today’s harvest, which consists of rhubarb, spinach, leeks, mangetouts, asparagus and flowers (geums, forget-me-nots and cosmos):

I really do feel like Lady Bountiful today with my trug, LOL!

Have a great bank holiday weekend!
