The Allotment Working Party

Today we’ve had the allotment working party, which has been great fun. We spent an hour or so tidying up the allotments and preparing for winter, and then it was time for the barbecue, hurrah! Special thanks to H for arranging it all, and I have to say a huge well done to S who produced the cupcakes, mmmm …. And, not only that, but the sun shone upon us so it’s been a perfect autumn day.

Meanwhile, on our allotment, the late sunflowers which arrived last week are still in bloom:

Sunflower 1 Sunflower 2

And we managed to gather a harvest of potatoes, beetroot, one courgette, more autumn raspberries and a barrel load of flowers, including chrysanthemums, cosmos, dahlias, asters, coreopsis and one lone geum.

Here are the flowers at home:

Hope you’ve all had a great weekend.
