The Allotment Wife

Another Little Harvest


Spring is ambling along nicely at the allotment and there are more tulips to collect, though not as many as last week:


Definitely no narcissi this week, but that’s not too surprising in April. The rhubarb is also coming along:


And there is a little more asparagus to pick too (which has the shadow of our sweet pea climbing frame across it):


So, today’s harvest is tulips, asparagus and rhubarb:


We had the asparagus for Sunday lunch, and I added the rhubarb into the apple crumble I made for dessert – and very nice it is too! We do so love the smell of fresh rhubarb – the perfect hint of summer.

Here are the vases at home:

I really love the striped tulips in this selection, especially the ones with a raspberry ripple effect. Sadly though I don’t know what they are as they came in a mixed sack. But if I saw them again, I’d definitely get them!

Have a great Sunday, everyone – and stay safe.

  2. The flowers look lovely!

    I love the scent of rhubarb too. I also realised that the fragrance I’m wearing at the moment has rhubarb in it – Burberry Brit Red!
