Gulp… Next year we’re taking on another plot directly adjacent to our current allotment (and saying goodbye to a part of the old one). But the prospect of turning this ground elder, thistle and assorted weeds infested plot is quite daunting to say the least. This is to become our ‘new’ cold frame. Yikes.

Jerusalem artichoke in flower, and probably producing more tubers than we can imagine. So if anybody has a great recipe…

We had kohlrabi in spring, and we harvested some. Then there were some unhappy plants left that stopped growing while it was hot and dry, we forgot about them, it cooled off+ rained some and look what we have here now…

New life. It looks like the artichoke has survived our (accidental) rigorous pruning.

And somehow the bok choy did well this year. It either bolts or is eaten by the snails, this year it just grew!

Regular

Week 25 of the 2018 growing season.

With some help from these two ninjas, this week we picked 3kg of really good cucumbers, 2.5kg of pretty split tomatoes, 1kg of a few big courgettes, and about 300g each of salad mix, radish, beetroot and beans, with a good 600g of sweet peppers. £4 in from the Sunday salad stall.

I’m hoping for harvests all the way to Halloween, but I am getting suspicious of how much longer some of the plants can handle. Otherwise, lots of weeding and tucking in for the year going on now. I’m not aiming for over winter harvests (just a bit easier that way) so I can start to tarp over the empty beds ready for next year now. Last orders before we close up, Plot.
