The Allotment Wife

The Beginning of Tulips


Unbelievably, the tulips on the allotment have actually started to sprout. Which makes me feel a bit guilty as last week a work friend said her tulips were sprouting and I said that couldn’t be true and it must be daffodils. More fool me! What do I know? Nothing! So, apologies, N – you were right …

Meanwhile, the daffodils are much taller now and there is another one in bloom, well gosh.

Even the lupin is getting in on the act. Though I must move it to the garden at home sometime soon, as I think it will do a lot better there, and they don’t make great cut flowers anyway.


So, we have a small but perfectly formed harvest (again!) of one beetroot and one daffodil. And they look so cute together too …


Here is the daffodil at home:


Have a lovely Sunday!

  1. Never thought of doing Cut flowers on the Allotment. Still marvelling at the Deer prints down in lovely Swanage. All new-ish to me. Hope the beetroot tastes good

    • Yes, it just means I don’t have to desecrate the garden at home – we give over a couple of beds or so each year to a variety of flowers as usually have them from Feb to November – which saves so much money! We have enough beds left for veg. We love our beetroot! 🙂
