I have a bit of a problem. Blogging. I take the photos, upload them and then stuff happens and I never get around to showing you the photos. I am also very, very behind on posting photos of Brette’s kitchen which I know you will love – this is coming this week. I promise.
Last Sunday I spent a couple of hours at the allotment. With the weather finally dry and quite warm it was the perfect time to assess and damage from the rain and to kneal on the ground humbly and weed.
The entrance to the allotments.
I was so pleased to find that apart from a lot of weeds, everything is growing really well and there are positive signs for the future.
Weeding around the broad (fava) beans completed, next time = the peas!
Flowers turning into strawberries.
And here are a couple of photos of other allotments in our section.
The grassy one:
The perfect one:
I live in hope of making our allotment a bit more perfect, but we need to wait until the end of the summer before making many changes to the layout. Oh, if only to start all over again…
This looks great! I would love to know how this works. Do you rent the space? Is it nearby your home?
The allotment is rented from the local council. We have had our one for about 20 years when they weren’t so in demand but it is not unsual to wait about two years for an allotment. Our one backs on to the Thames and is about a ten minute walk from home.
