The lovely weather last week meant that we managed some long afternoons on the allotment as well as in the garden. We almost were tempted to think that spring had finally arrived and the bad weather was behind us. Then over the weekend the weather took a turn for the worse and the strong winds were back to batter any young plants that we managed to get planted.
As well as planting it was a chance to tidy and also clear beds. We cleared the bed containing the remains of our leek harvest.
Our final harvest of last season's leeks coincides with the sowing of this season's leek seeds.
The bed containing a few remaining carrots was also cleared and provided us with a few remaining jumbo roots.
I also managed to pick a few daffodils that have been filling our living room with a beautiful perfume.
Other than a few red cabbages our last season's harvest of fresh vegetables has come to an end. Fortunately we have quite a lot of vegetables in the freezer to keep us going until we can start harvesting this season's crops.
