Lovely weather for the allotment today, which is a total contrast to yesterday’s all-day heavy rain. We wore Wellington boots just in case but it wasn’t too wet in the end. Anyway, we’ve started preparing for spring. K took the rest of the potatoes out, and I planted stored daffodils into that bed. We’ll get some new ones too to fill one of the other beds, but here is the current one – before I actually plant them:
The Brussels sprouts we planted last week are doing well:
And K planted another bed of them today, so here are the latest ones:
Meanwhile the lilies are still hanging on to their buds, but the time for getting any actual flowers is very short now so I suspect we’re out of luck, oh well …
The asters, however, are having a wonderful time and of course autumn is really their season!
Here are a couple of pictures of our harvest, which is asters, a sprinkling of gladioli (well, one really …), potatoes, leeks and even a few late autumn raspberries, which we thought we weren’t getting – an added bonus indeed, and I shall add them to the apple crumble for lunch:
And here are the flowers at home:
Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone.
