Plot in the gloom

We needed to replenish our vegetable stock and so despite the gloomy weather on Friday we needed to pay a visit to the plot.

The photos in this album show just how gloomy things were but fail to show just how cold it was. It actually felt much colder than the temperature showed - maybe we have become soft what with the lack of frost so far.

I did think of lightening the photos so you wouldn't have to try peering through the darkness but that's how things were - not an ideal day for taking photos or in fact doing anything else.



A full list of what we managed to harvest is here

  1. The red rose looks pretty good for December.
    Wish I had space for leeks and Brussels sprouts. If I plant them I have to miss out on Summer veg. Life's full of compromises.

  2. That is a nice size allotment susan.
    A lot going on Strawberries as well.

  3. Isn't it just Mark? That particular rise bush had quite a lot of flowers.

    Unfortunately the damp weather means the strawberries are turning soggy and mouldy before we manage to pick them, Cathy. I was going to cut them off but it was too slow a job in the cold wind.

  4. We were getting spoiled with the warm weather also. The weather is now turning colder. It's been an odd year weather wise. Our grass at the house was mowed yesterday. I don't ever remember having to mow the grass in December!

    Your allotments are so big! I'm jealous!

  5. It's been such a gloomy weekend, Sue. At least the wind has died down now, that's my worst kind of weather. Thanks for entering my giveaway.

  6. It's all looking neat and well cared for - seems like you are on top of everything - wish my sprouts looked like yours - mine are the right size for a fairy dinner.

  7. We wouldn't be able to have anything as big if we applied now Robin - it's just no-one wanted them when we first started to rent.

    I don't like the wind either. Jo we had lumps of acrylic on our plot - presumably someone's cold frame or greenhouse windows.

    Our sprouts were the same for the last two years Elaine so it's a bonus this year - see the post which will be posted this week.

  8. You might think it looks gloomy and murky .. I'm hugely impressed.

    It's too easy when we are so close to our own plots to see all the imperfections. I know I do it at Bag End.

  13. Your plot is looking a lot better than I am betting mine is Sue - I am venturing up there later to pick chard and see what else I can rescue from the weeks of neglect...

  14. You may be pleasantly surprised Janet. We can't do much on the ground at the moment as the soil is already claggy.

  15. Your plot is looking so much more tidy than mine...the weather has been pretty gloomy here too...having to visit the plot is about the only thing that gets me to venture out the house!!
