Well, that’s definitely the end of any hope of lilies, I’m afraid. This morning’s sharp frost finally got them in full and I’ve now cut them down:
The sweet williams continue to thrive, however, so should produce a good crop next year. K cut off the tips again as we don’t want them to flower now.
In exciting news, the first of our daffodil shoots are coming through so we’re looking forward to more of them making their presence known over the next few weeks and beyond. Not sure what that spare bulb is doing though! Maybe it’s making a bid for freedom, LOL!
There is still plenty of beetroot to harvest so we’ve taken some for lunch today.
In the sunlight, the remains of the autumn raspberry patch look amazing, even though the crop has been terrible this year:
And here are a couple of shots of the allotment in full. Not much around now as you can see, and the Brussel sprouts are proving very disappointing – with no growth and no sprouts at all, so that’s a real disappointment. Perhaps we didn’t put them in early enough or grow them on first properly? Not sure, but I fear I’m going to have to buy sprouts for Christmas again, sob! I LOVE sprouts …
Here is the very minimal harvest of a few straggly chrysanthemums and the ever-reliable beetroot:
And here is the vase at home:
Have a lovely Sunday, everyone.
