An exciting time at the allotment today as we have planted the first of the crops for this year, yay! First off are the gladioli – we have four buckets full of the bulbs of last year’s stock plus a new packet for this year. So I’ve planted three rows and will do more every couple of weeks so we can get a succession of flowers, hopefully from June to October.
We also planted shallots and then put netting on them to prevent the birds taking them – with shallots, you have to plant them no more than an inch into the ground which means that the pointy bit tends to stick up and birds think they’re worms and uproot them.
K also planted peas and we netted them too but I didn’t take a picture of that.
Am also happy to say the rhubarb is definitely growing:
And we have more daffodils:
Not only that, but some of the tulips now have flowerheads on them and the lilies are growing too:
Here is the harvest:
And here is the vase at home. One of the daffodils has an amazing scent so that’s fabulous.
Have a great Sunday.
