September at the allotment

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

For most of the summer holidays, apart from the odd visit to water in the polytunnel and harvest beans, courgettes and potatoes, my poor little allotment has been languishing neglected and looking increasingly scruffy. But with the new school term came new resolve and child free time to spend at the allotment. The grass paths were long enough to take 2, yes 2! hours  to cut earlier this week, although I did manage to dig up my onions too. Today I was there for another 2 hours to sort out the weeds. It all looks much more cared for and less scruffy now.

Red spring onions – left in to bulb up into onions.

The runner beans are still growing at breakneck speed as are  the courgettes although not so fast.

Last years’ parsnips left in for the lovely acid green flowers in spring
