Allotment Adventures: Usual work

We had a really good Saturday this week and were on the plot for a good long while but there is still so much work to do.We finally have patty pans! We harvested most of the green beans (1.774kg), there where lots of tomatoes, some carrots, salad and herbs. I also cut almost all the leaves off the tomatoes because the weather is humid and rainy right now.

I planted out pak choi and a spring cabbage and chard. Next week, when all the green beans come up, I’ll plant out the other kale. I still need to sort out the raspberries. Ma weeded and weeded and weeded. Sometimes, it feels like I never get to the bits I want to do but then I look at the plot and the produce and I stop because even though it’s not perfect or going entirely to plan, it looks amazing and I’m feeding myself.

    Fantastic looking harvest. Makes the hard work worthwhile

      It really does, I always feel better after some time at the plot! Although I am realising why the traditional allotment division of labour was man to grow, woman to process. A trip to the allotment means an hour at the sink before I even start to think about jams and pickle!
