Just me at the allotment this morning (early to avoid the rain!), as K is studying for an exam next week, so I did a general hoe round, scattered some slug pellets and sprayed insect doom on the lilies. As you do.
Today’s big excitement was the first of the rhubarb harvest – so I’ll make a rhubarb & apple crumble tomorrow for lunch (hurrah!). Plus the first of the gladioli are starting to come up in the bed they’re supposed to be in (the one with the plastic bag markers at the end) and also in the bed they’re not supposed to be in – as no matter how thoroughly you dig them up, you just can’t keep a good gladioli down, LOL! The lupin and alliums are doing well too, but the sweet peas are struggling a bit. I hope they catch up soon.
Also pleased to see some more asparagus just starting to appear, and the soft fruit and autumn raspberries areas are doing fabulously well.
Have a great weekend, everyone.
