We arrived at the plot around 10am and left about 3.oopm. It was a good day at the allotment.
So much fresh produce. Most of it our own: beetroot, green beans, broccoli, Desiree potatoes, onions, carrots and red Marner cabbage; and a bag full of plums from Fitzy. Fitzy permitted to me pick some as long as I made him a plum cake. Good deal I think.
Amongst the marigolds, two types of beetroot: Detroit 2 and Golden.
The magnificent blauhilde climbing beans still growing on and on.
Red Swiss Chard
Some red onions, not very big are they?!
Much of my day was taken up by pulling out the white onions and then weeding and clearing the allium family bed.
These onions are okay, better than those I grew at home. I have left them in the hut to dry now so that I can store them for later use.
Some squash flowers. Tempura - nah I decided to leave them for the bees that are still hovering about.
From the surface this parsnip looked huge, which is what tempted me to pull it out the ground. But when I did, what did I find, a forked parsnip that is no good for anyone but the compost bin. Hopefully the others will be better...I would really like some of my own parsnips for Christmas please.
