The Allotment Wife

Ring out the old, ring in the new!


The last allotment post for 2016 and indeed the last day of 2016 – what a rollercoaster year it’s been, LOL.

On the allotment front, we’re pleased to see that the January daffodils are well on their way:


And the later (Feb) daffodils are also starting to sprout, hurrah!



We’ve also taken the opportunity to replace our old and rubbish  (green & purple) secateurs with shiny new red ones that actually cut – which should make things a heck of a lot easier …


Whilst there, K dug out the potato bed (see harvest pic!) and I weeded the beds and fruit area, as well as the areas of pathway. This was made a far easier job by the lack of frost this morning, phew …

Here is today’s harvest, which consists of the last of the winter lettuce, potatoes and sprouts, together with a couple of gladioli bulbs we missed and which we’re bringing home for storage.


Have a fabulous new year, everyone!

  1. Everything’s going to be in full bloom again before you know it!

    Love the harvest! Call me weird, but I think the sprouts look particularly yummy – I think it’s because they look so much greener than the dubious supermarket-sprouts…
