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?

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.

Another half hour allotment trip to prune the fruit shrubs. Love the subtle colours of these buds on the blackcurrant as they’re poised to burst into life.

Biggest surprise at the allotment! Apparently we’ll actually be eating some Romanesco. Plant of neglect and patience, is my conclusion…

Just about the greenest thing on the plot. Makes for a good christmas-cocktail topping too…

I think I can be sure or some volunteer cape gooseberries next year.

I think the parsnips might be telling us to do some better digging next year.
