The Allotment Wife

Mole Hill City

Goodness, but the moles are having a fabulous party at the allotment! Mind you, they’re really the only thing that’s seriously got going at the moment, so I don’t really begrudge them, LOL.

I only did a bit of gentle weeding this week as I have a minor tear to the rotator cuff in my left shoulder (the one I had the operation on 4 years ago) and I don’t want to make it any worse – as the doctor advised me yesterday! Mind you, it’s certainly better than earlier this week when it was really incredibly painful, ouch and double ouch. I fear I will have to give up the Zumba, alas …

Anyway, the daffodils are doing their best – we even have a stray one in one of the disastrous Brussels sprouts bed, so at least something worked in there, hey ho …

And the tulips are a tiny bit taller than they were last week, which is positive news. I think they look like tiny mouths desperate to be fed, but maybe that’s just me:

The rhubarb is hanging on in there too:

Not much else going on at the moment however. So the harvest of two beetroots and some daffodils is small but perfectly formed!

Here are the daffodils at home. I added them to last week’s mini-harvest which is still going strong, so it’s almost a bunch now …

Have a lovely and relaxing weekend, everyone!
