The sun was out, so we thought we would make the most of it at the allotment, after all no promises are being made for sun-shining days in the coming weeks.
As well as plenty of winter vegetables growing, there is also a lot of colour on my plot, which makes me happy. The dwarf sunflowers have decided to come out and play.
The roses are red, red, red.
There were even some raspberries. I had dug some raspberry canes last year from plot 11 and planted them in the border of plot 45, here are some raspberries growing, not many - but enough for some muffins I think.
Here are some purple beans I decided to keep and dry for next year. I haven't had much luck drying climbing beans, as twice they have rotted. I have come to the conclusion that perhaps I have not left enough room around them to aerate, so this time I will ensure I do that.
The potato and legume bed we had started clearing last weekend, got its final thorough weeding and digging over before we covered it over with some black sheeting. I found it quite tough removing the bean vines around the make-shift bean frame, all tightly twisted.
