A definite hint of autumn in the air today – lot of torrential rain followed by bursts of welcome sunshine. Strangely we were the only ones on the allotment today – and we certainly needed wellies.
I’m pleased to say the carrots, courgette & French beans are doing well.
The courgette even has its first very small fruit which is great news (thank you to Maureen who kindly donated the plant to us!).
Last weekend, when I was (a) hugely busy and (b) depressed, K did the allotment on his own and planted up some hearting lettuce which has bravely fought off the slugs (so large!) to make it to this week:
They’ve got a while to go though! I’m also happy with the scented lilies:
And the alstroemeria and gladioli are also coming along:
Today, we have a harvest of lilies, astroemeria, Sweet Williams, sweetpeas, blueberries, a few loganberries, beetroots, French beans, carrots and one cabbage (so nearly winter then!):
Here are the vases at home:
Have a lovely weekend.
