Down on the allotment

This is the current state of our allotment:


I know, it's a work in progress...(we've had it for nearly 9 years - it's been a work in progress all along.  We'll get there one day).

There's more going on than at first glance if you look closely:

Here we see a first early potato poking its head above the surface...

These will be lovely in a salad come the summer.

A recently planted onion.

We usually grow enough to keep us going well into the winter.

Strawberries starting to flower.

Plenty of rhubarb.

Makes a lovely crumble, and I even made some rhubarb wine a couple of years ago.

I love spending time on the allotment, a bit of digging for exercise (who needs a gym membership?!!), watching the fruit and vegetables progress as the year goes on, and the pleasure of bringing home your own produce for tea!!

  1. Mmmmmm!!!! Rhubarb.... i'm excited as I've got a small fig tree from my Grandad's and my mum started off raspberries and strawberries for me which she gave me today. And yes, who needs to pay for exercise! I walk 3 miles a day so that's mine (apart from lindy!) X
