Growing things update
A few update posts to things we've been up to over the last few days. We spent some time at the allotment on Sunday after Alex ran his community gardening course in the morning. It was a gloriously sunny afternoon. One of our plot neighbours was sunbathing when we arrived.
Imogen started with a little bug hunting, something she enjoys doing. She also likes to lay out foods for the bugs, especially caterpillars lately.
Imogen helped Daddy clear an old potato bed where it appears we forgot to dig up the potatoes from, so came home with a crate of potatoes and some we planted as they'd got good growth on them already. Most of the ones taken home were still okay, a bit thick skinned but okay once cooked.
We harvested more purple and white sprouting broccoli, and plenty of Chard. We left the Spinach bed this week as we had some at home still, and actually the bed of Spinach at home is producing loads at the moment too.
Back soon with more updates.
