New Year at the Allotment

Leave a comment

First visit to the allotment in 2019 today so very exciting! Wasn’t expecting much to have happened in actual fact but we have our first daffodils already! Okay, the ones with actual flowers on aren’t the ones we planted in the autumn (LOL!) but are stray ones we forgot about – but hey I’m not complaining. Daffodils this early in January is a fabulous result!!

Elsewhere not much is going on but the whole year lies ahead …

Mind you, the rhubarb has started early, so I hope it’s going to do better than last year – which was a bit of a rhubarb disaster, alas …


So we have a mini-harvest of 3 beetroots and 2 daffodils, but we’re ridiculously proud of it!


Here is the vase at home:


Happy New Year to you all!
