The Allotment Wife

Winding Down for Winter

Leave a comment

Not much happening at the allotment this week, and there’s sadly no flowers to pick for home, so definitely the end of the season. It’s lovely to potter about though.

Still, we did manage to dig up all the gaura and compost it – it’s not good as a cut flower (too much stuff drops off and makes a mess) and we’ve got more than enough at home so there’s no need to replant it. However, I did dig up the crocosmias and replanted them at home – though they’re not a great cut flower, they do look beautiful in the garden.

However, the good news is that the Brussels sprouts are doing well and we’re looking forward to having those for Christmas:

And, of course, the lettuce is still going for the burn and there’s definitely enough to see us through this week!

So, here’s the harvest – which is basically the lettuce and the crocosmias, LOL:

Have a great Sunday!
