The Allotment Wife

Rainy Allotment and Scented Daffodils


Very rainy at the allotment this morning – I suspect we’ve had the English summer and this is now the autumn, LOL. Anyway, this morning, K planted 2 more rhubarb plants, and the rest of them are really coming along – so much so that we’ve had to take out several flower stems from the middle of those already there, as per the great Monty Don’s advice.

Also I’ve started the succession gladioli planting this week – two rows of 20 and then I’ll plant them every fortnight until we’re done, so we get a nice range through the summer and into the autumn.

This week the scented daffodils have started to appear – and the smell is just AMAZING! Plus, as you can see from the photos, you can never ever be sure that you have all the tulips out, and the first three are now in bloom – not where we wanted them to be but hey I’m not complaining.

Have a lovely week.
