The Allotment Wife

Allotment Spring Party

Leave a comment

The allotment spring working party is suddenly here – that came quickly! So we spent a couple of hours this morning tidying up the allotment to get it ready for the summer, and then had a BBQ together which was great. Fantastic weather for it too!

On our own allotment, K planted some potatoes – second earlies – and I put another couple of rows of gladioli in for the succession planting. The rhubarb is coming on swiftly but not quite ready for harvesting yet – and we have our first two asparagus spears, hurrah! Which I have taken home – a small but perfectly formed meal, LOL.

We’ve also taken out the rest of the beetroot and have managed to glean one or two edibles ones – ie large enough to be worth eating – but the rest we will put in the garden waste bin at home.

The first alliums are on their way, and the autumn raspberries and soft fruit zone are also doing well. And the tulips are of course glorious!

Have a great Sunday, and good luck to all the London Marathon runners today, especially  Karen at work!
