It might be a little optimistic but we’ve started some broadbeans. Fingers crossed that they will be fine in the coldframe.

Anyone else who is equally optimistic/naive?

Encouraged by the previous cardoon stalks I picked I thought these were going to be great! But they were bitter…

I can’t seem to figure them out. Anyone who knows the secret?

Isn’t this seaweed awesome?

Any experience adding seaweed to compost? Should we?

Classic Winter allotment task: tidying the shed. OK, there’s still stuff stacked up everywhere but at least I can now actually get through the door, AND I found my long lost secateurs sharpener!

Decided to gradually transition to using organic seed at the allotment wherever possible. Just got this batch @kingsseeds / @suffolkherbs via the allotment seed scheme. Somehow choosing a variety of Runner Bean called ‘Lady Di’ seems quite appropriate given the Harry & Meghan furore.

Our plastic crow ‘guards’ the strawberry patch in summer but is actually quite a good measure for how our rye is growing.

Winter apple storage.

I always take some apples to my dad’s so they can join his winter stash. We save the blemish-free and keep it dark and cool. Any other winning strategies for winter storage out there?

When there is hardly anything growing outside, we’ll just grow some mushrooms inside…
