Allotment Adventures: Cages

Behold the power of an August harvest!

The Uchiki Kiri in the boxes were dying back so we cut them down and they are now in my living room curing. We had the usual abundance of courgettes and crooknecks. The kale and chard are starting to grow and the tomatoes are getting really for a glut!

I finally got some sweetcorn and carrots (and carrot tops for more pesto) and the second sowing of salad is recovering from the heat and we got some leaves.In really exciting news, Ma and I build some pigeon protection for the kale beds this weekThey feel properly allotment-y!

Ma weeded and woodchipped the raspberries, I tackled the leaves on the crookneck and courgettes, giving them a massive haircut as they were looking very mildewed.

The ‘Christmas’ potatoes have finally come up! So I topped up with more compost!Next week, I really need to sort out planting some of the lavender and there is more weeding, feeding and picking to do.

I love this time of year on the plot!
