Look at those artichokes going!
I am always amazed how they die off after flowering and then spring right back.

Might try something like this this year. Seeing as we might downsize it might be interesting. Maybe change some of the veg.

Finally made it down the allotment the last two weekends, one sunny, one rainy! It was a lovely surprise to see the rhubarb had come up and the apple buds were starting to form, more of a surprise to find a full garlic bed we never planted.
