We are bamboozled by how yellow and sad our allotment sweet peas are in both areas where we have planted them …
I’m really not sure what is going on – we protect them against slugs and we certainly mulched before we planted – but the colour of these is totally different from the lovely lush green ones we have at home. It’s a mystery, hey ho …
In better news, however, more gladioli shoots are coming up and I planted two more rows today as well.
The lilies are also strutting their stuff:
I’m also happy to say that the autumn raspberry bed is looking very good indeed (see below pic), so here’s hoping we get a good crop. (In other news, the gooseberry cage is doing a great job at keeping the birds away, so we actually still have gooseberries this week!).
And there’s enough asparagus on the plot to last us several meals:
Today’s harvest is a couple of spare tulips, the first of the verbascum (hurrah!), two alliums, and the asparagus:
Here is the vase at home:
Stay safe, everyone.
