There are many more daffodils on the allotment this week, which is lovely news:
The little narcissi next to the shed door are also out, which is very cute – I have to be careful when opening the door, but they seem to survive:
We also have our first tulip but, annoyingly, it’s one of the small ones (way too small for cutting!!) that I thought I’d got rid of last year. Oh well, the splash of colour is still very welcome:
This morning, we put up the stakes and netting for the mangetouts and have planted them out. We used most of them, but put the remainder on the allotment bench for other people if they can make use of them. And, yes, I put slug pellets down to protect them. Here’s hoping the mice don’t eat them all first though!
I also took the opportunity to plant up three rows of gladioli for the first of our successional planting. I’ll do the next few rows in a couple of weeks or so to elongate the season:
I’m pleased to say the rhubarb has come on well in the past week and is looking quite happy:
I even had time for a bit of a sit-down and admiring the roses, which was nice:
So here is the daffodil harvest:
And here are the vases at home:
Have a good week, everyone, and let’s hope that the world news gets better very soon.
