Cherry plums galore in Denmark. I just had to point out every fruit tree we came across, and every one in a while had to excuse myself for disappearing again. Because of course, I had to get me some plums!

We sowed dill in this spot and thought it never appeared. We planted verbena instead. They make a pretty combination now and I am hoping that they will both spread some seeds.

Broccoli!!! Or icky green flowers, as my nephew calls them. Though these are most definitely not icky.

Juicy, red, pretty plums. Suffering from plum moth caterpillars on the inside though. So tell us your tips and tricks to get rid of them. Any experience with pheromone traps?

Purple rain and Frieslander potatoes! I’ve always been a fan of Prince, but I assure you this is a complete coincidence.

Week 20 of the 2018 growing season.

Faiiiirly quiet week at the plot. Lots of blackberry and plum picking with the kids and their cousins instead though.

4.8kg of cucumbers (⅔ sellable), 3.7kg of courgettes (½ sellable), 3.4kg of tomatoes (⅓ sellable) and 500g of mixed lettuce. Another oddly low sales week with £2 in for a box of tomatoes. My theory (well, hypothesis) is that either the novelty of the salad stall has worn off, or that all of the usual customers are off on holiday. Or I haven’t noticed a zombie apocalypse. Again.

While the other rabarbie was taking care of the lottie, I was travelling around Denmark and visiting old friends. Who happened to have a huge plum in their huge garden. And also all the necessary tools to make plum wine! Swipe for the process of harvesting and boiling, crushing this year’s plums.
