The Allotment Wife

Rhubarb and tidying

Leave a comment

Just time to do a quick tidy  and hoe round of the allotment this morning – first time on the allotment in 2017, hurrah! We unexpectedly have an early sign of rhubarb but it’s a tad small to harvest as yet …

On the other hand, the leeks have done nothing exciting for weeks so we may well just have to harvest and eat them as they are at some point – we were hoping for something larger(!), but they seem to be in hibernation for the moment:

However, the daffodils shoots look hopeful and it would be great to have at least one bloom in January – we’ll have to wait and see …

While K dug up the potatoes, I tidied up one of our ‘mix & match’ beds which hasn’t worked out so well, and there are just the sweet williams left in there now. We’ll have to start planning what to grow around them!

And here is today’s harvest of potatoes and sprouts – yum!

Happy New Year, and have a great weekend, everyone!
