Mr Musclemanā€™s 2019 cold-frame re-build project is done!

Re-used wood, serendipitously acquired aluminium frames and some fresh plexiglass make us all set for growing winter greens.

Sink-sized pumpkin, or turns out its a giant spaghetti squash. Calling on the other rabarbie for help in eating it.

Any cardoon pros out there? Help needed while my mind is saying two things:
1. ā€˜Looks like great young cardoon stalks, yum!ā€™
2. ā€˜Isnā€™t it a little late to harvest these?ā€™
Any thoughts on which of the above to go with??

Finally got round to building this compost bin which now ready for all the stuff I need clear from our plot

Our gloves were actually frozen. So we left them to thaw in the sun. Beats having frosty tips.

The ultimate: both this yearā€™s best and last.
This flower is pale and frayed in comparison, but it just had to come home after I lifted the tubers for winter storage.

One of our neighbour’s haul. Envy inducing, wouldn’t you agree? Also, note to self : see if we can get our hands on some patty pan seeds for next year!

Just moved a palette that was leaning against the shed at the allotment and discovered this now empty nest sitting on top of it. Wonder who itā€™s occupants were?

Surprise celery!
I was so eager to plant celeriac this spring I accidentally bought seedlings two weeks in a row. Turns out I actually bought celery the second time round. Win.
