Rebutia ‘apricot ice’ in flower.

Monday 12th May: Some beautiful skies up at the allotment today.

Monday 5th May: Managed to plant out the Berlotti beans and some salad. The broad beans have been staked in preparation for them becoming laden with beans. I also mulched the strawberries ready for the early summer strawberry harvest.

The allotment is looking beautiful at the moment as it benefits from the long, warm weekend.

Sunday 27th April: Transforming the last of the redcurrants into chutney (redcurrant and red onion chutney), just in time to start thinking about what we’ll do with all this years currants!

Saturday 5th April: Some forced rhubarb and some unforced cabbages waiting to be planted out.

Friday 4th April: broad beans just beginning to poke through.

Saturday 15th March: First harvest of the year, apart from parsnips and kale! Small, but perfectly formed harvest of kale and purple sprouting broccoli.

Monday 10th Feb 2014: Daffs are out in force in Tavistock Square, Central London!
