Lovely to be back at the allotment today as I’ve been off sick for two weeks – the first week with a bad cold and the second week with the Village Vomiting Virus – you don’t want to know and you do NOT want it!! Anyway, neither of these nasty things turned out to be Covid, and I’m must better now, which is good news.
The allotment of course is more than happy to carry on without much input and looks pretty good in this weekend’s glorious sunshine.
The lilies have come along in leaps and bounds in my absence:
And the rhubarb is looking good too, though still not large enough for cropping.
The shallots are quite happy:
And the roses look surprisingly healthy – much healthier than the ones we have at home!
The tulips are looking like little jewels:
And the soft fruit is very happy in its cage:
Whilst there, we hoed the beds and strimmed the edges of the plot, and also gave everything a good water as the soil is as dry as dust. We also planted up a couple of more rows of gladioli:
And one more row of beetroot:
We’ll take those daffodils out near the beetroot soon so we have room for more beetroot plants. It’s such a great crop.
Here is today’s harvest:
And here are the tulips at home in their vases. Tulips look so much better when they’re placed in a vase with similar colours, I have to say.
Have a lovely Easter, everyone.
