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?

Isn’t this seaweed awesome?

Any experience adding seaweed to compost? Should we?

Our plastic crow ‘guards’ the strawberry patch in summer but is actually quite a good measure for how our rye is growing.

Green manure at work. This is yellow mustard, multitasking its way through winter. Soil improvement and also keeping weeds at bay? You better believe it!

Starting the new year with some parsnip and sweet potato soup. How did you start the new decade?

Our 2019 highlights were clearly all about fruit, flowers and colour. Sounds about right to me, I must say! Well, lots hope 2020 is equally colourful?

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