The lilies are giving a blast of colour to the allotment today, I’m pleased to report.
Plus we also have the first carnations in bloom, and more of the cosmos as well. Apologies for the out-of-focus carnations but I couldn’t get the sun in the right place, LOL.
The sweet williams are continuing their amazing display and we have our first sweet pea flower, hurrah! I have to say the ones at home are doing a lot better, but then again they have more sun.
Finally, in Flower City, the verbascum are still putting up a good show, though you have to watch out for those cabbage white butterfly caterpillars …
This week, we’ve also put six cabbages in the allotment for the first time just to see how they get on. I hope I’ve left enough space for growth!
We’re also really pleased with how the beetroot is getting along, so are hoping for a good crop from those.
And the peas now have some nice flowers on them, which is positive, hurrah.
There’s lots of healthy foliage on the autumn raspberries (which means I don’t have to weed that patch!), but it’s too early for fruit at the moment.
Here is the harvest, including the flowers, asparagus and rhubarb:
And here are the vases at home:
Have a great weekend.
