Morning, so a bit different workdesk this week.  This was last night (as today my desk is covered with work so cant show that) and its the allotment!  
This is my 2nd plot (I have 2 half size plots) and I took this one on this year after being on the list for over 2 years.  It hadnt been cultivated for over a year so was thick in weeds so I decided to only cultivate half of it and cover the top half and plant through it (to allow the weeds below the covering to die back) and planted my squash through there, also there was a row of what looked potentially like flowers so I kept these (in the middle of the photo) and there are viola's, mulliens (tall spiky flower) and some floppy tall yellow ones (no idea what they are) and some lovely purple spikey ones too - either way they look lovely and the bee's love them!

after my tatties I then had a bed of strawberries.  To protect them a bit I covered them in old net curtains to keep the birds off!  Looks odd but is free and seems to work ok.  I placed my "man bites dog" cards on there and dealt "Dog weeps for Crazy Model" - well, bless the dog!

These are the tatties, some flowers, onions and sweetcorn.  At the back of the plot are some autumn raspberries and a VERY large red currant bush!

 hence this was last nights harvest.  Radish, spicy salad leaves, garlic scrapes, strawberries and red currants.  I also had a large bag of broad beans from my other plot I harvested yesterday so this will keep me going for a while.

So, like I said, a bit of a different update from me, but with work being super busy in the past year the allotment is a great break from work and time out (hence I even had a plot in my 20's when we rented a flat in Bath back in the early 90's)

So, What's on YOUR workdesk this Wednesday?



  1. What a great garden you have. Amazing what you can grow, isn't it. Love it !!

    Take care and happy WOYWW
