Winter is always a good time to reflect on the previous years ups and downs, to review what worked and what didn't, and to plan the year ahead. Alex likes the Winter time on the allotment as it is a time where he feels he is ahead of the weeds, and the wildness of the plot. There has been huge progress on our allotment plot this year but there is still work to be done on the top half - removing unwanted trees, shrubs and brambles.
Things continue to grow, producing lovely green leaves and beautiful purple sprouting broccoli, beetroots are still to be pulled up too.
So this is the work going on in our garden and allotment over the next few months, with planning next Springs adventures being done in the warmth and comfort of our home. Nothing stays still, there is always something changing and growing.
These are some of the things still coming home with us at the moment, although the tomatoes are finishing now (except the lovely plum one in the greenhouse).
