Much to my delight, the first of the carnations are in bloom at the allotment today – I’ll definitely be bringing some more up to plant alongside them – I do so love that spicy scent of cloves they have.
We’ve also now dug up the daffodil bulbs for storing for next year – there seem to be loads of them too. Much more than before – I will have to bring up yet another big pot to put them in! We’ll probably plant some of the Brussels sprouts plants in the bed that is now spare, but will have to see how things go.
I also planted the rest of our gladioli bulbs so there is now a whole bed of them. The asparagus is also doing well and there was plenty for today’s lunch, hurrah:
Here is today’s harvest of verbascums, carnations, asparagus and rhubarb (the latter of which I added to today’s apple crumble – yum!):
Here are the vases at home:
The verbascums do straighten out once they’re in water but look like a weird alien at the moment, LOL!
Have a lovely Bank Holiday and stay safe.
