Huge amounts of weeding to do on the allotment this week as we didn’t go last weekend as the weather was so appalling. Actually it wasn’t much better today but we had wellies and raincoats so were just about fine.
While we were away, the asparagus went mad:
And the rhubarb wasn’t that far behind either, which is brilliant news for today’s rhubarb crumble:
The lilies are also coming along nicely:
And the soft fruit bed is looking good too (must be the rain!):
While I was weeding and hoeing like a crazy woman, K got to grips with the long grass around the plot and also set up a climbing frame for the French beans which we planted today. Here you can see them with a rather sad looking courgette which we also added (front of pic):
I have also removed most of the daffodils from one of the beds they’ve been in and plan to tackle the other bed next week, weather permitting. I will store these in the shed and those that survive will be planted again in the autumn:
Here is the harvest – which consists of asparagus, rhubarb and two lone tulips!
Have a great Sunday, everyone, and stay dry!
