The Allotment Wife

The Day of the Dahlias

Leave a comment

It’s astonishing how well the dahlias are now doing, and there are even more buds to come – should the weather be kind.

Not only that, but the asters look very pretty too:

However, it’s still definitely autumn so everything is winding down – though I don’t think the courgette has yet got that message as it’s still producing fruits, and I harvested 3 of them today – more to come!

Anyway, I did a hoe round and also cleared the weeds on the paths, while K sorted out compost and tidied round the autumn raspberries bed – which are also on the way out in terms of produce, sadly.

Here is the harvest, which includes, a beetroot, courgettes, autumn raspberries, lettuce, echinacea, marigolds, coreopsis, asters and dahlias.

Here are the vases at home – I’ve tried to keep to a colour theme this time, and I think it works.

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
