There I am, putting on my suncream for a good healthy once-a-day walk to the allotment with my husband, and a quarter of the way there, it is sleeting!!! Great news for the first day of British summertime, hey ho. Anyway the walk there and back was invigorating – to say the least!
Once on the allotment, we are surprised by tulips, hurrah:
So lovely to see their beautiful colours. The rhubarb is also doing well:
And we have planted our first crop of the allotment year – shallots!
We made sure to put them in a side of the bed they’ve not been before, and also not to bury them too deeply as they do like having their tops showing (the picture shows them before planting however so they’re not that shallow, LOL!).
Whilst there I did a hoe round, though actually things weren’t too bad, and K mended another one of our raised beds, which was great.
Here is the harvest:
And here are the flowers at home:
Have a good Sunday, and stay safe, everyone.
