The Allotment Wife

September Allotment

Leave a comment

The flowers are going over now so we’re definitely in autumn. Still there should be autumn flowers such as chrysanthemums in bloom soon, amongst others, so it’s not all over yet.

Here are the alstroemerias, dahlias and gladioli – with the latter two, the show is definitely on the way out …

However, the lilies look as if they might still get a bloom or two before the year is done, and we have more sunflowers to come:

The sweet williams we planted last week haven’t done much, but hey at least they’re still there, LOL! We gave them a good water so they can continue to establish themselves.

We’ve now taken down the sweet peas as they’re definitely over, so that tidies up that part of the plot. This week, we have a harvest of one beetroot, courgettes, a scattering of French climbing beans and the flowers:

Only two vases today, but they do look pretty.

Have a lovely weekend!
