The allotment is still full of weeds, but I am really happy with how allotmenting is going so far. Neither of us have grown veg or fruit before so there was a possibility nothing would happen. Also, we’ve only managed to go once a week, while our neighbors seem to go several times a week. Frankly, we have too much to do to manage that!
Nonetheless, as you can see, the plot is a success. This week we got French beans, runner bean, salad onions, yellow zucchini, zucchini, cabbage, carrots, beets and the last of the potatoes. Isn’t that amazing?
It was also a particularly lovely visit as I had a cuddle with Ginger, the allotment cat. I don’t think he cares for the warm weather; he seemed even more laidback than usual and went for a long nap in our raspberries after sitting on my lap for a good 10 minutes. 🙂
A couple of our allotment neighbors may sniff at our weeds, but we are telling ourselves we are substance over style. 🙂 How about you? Do you manage to keep on top of weeds, or are you happy to get anything at all?
