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.

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!

This abstract piece of art is called ‘The conquest of the monsterpumpkin’. Part 1. Actually, this is just a quarter of the Beast, which we used for delicious and tangy pumpkin jam.

My guess is that this year’s edition of the monsterpumpkin tips the scale at 10 kilos at the minimum. Which means it’s too heavy to take home on my bike… Is there an Uber just for gardenhauls?

Green manure at work, doing wonderful things for the soil. This part of the plot was quite neglected when we took over this January. Our three step plan to improve the soil was a) remove all the weeds b) plant loads of potatoes and harvest and feast on said potatoes d) green manure to get some needed nutrients back into the earth. Come early spring we’ll see if the rye did what it had to do.

In Greek mythology, Prometheus hid fire in a stalk of fennel. Now assuming that was the herb variety, I think he could’ve equally used a bulb of fennel. These are big enough to hide a small fire, but certainly set my heart alight.

There’s no denying, it’s pumpkin season. And it’s starting with a classic and favourite of ours, the kabocha. Can’t wait to try it! What’s your fave pumpkin recipe ever?

That one mystery pumpkin/squash /zucchini is turning more and more into a good and honest pumpkin. But neither of us have any idea what variety because it looks like none we have.

I think we have enough warrigal to feed a small village.
