allotment tasks

It's a busy time on the allotment, so all help is gratefully received.

There are important tasks to be done: watering, stroking the thyme plant to release the aroma and ....

... most important of all, pouring water onto the paving stones to see how they change colour.

We picked the first of the gooseberries and several bowls of strawberries plus some radishes.
There are beetroot, broad beans and swiss chard to come soon.

And if you have red onions and cucumber, (or other crunchy veg) either homegrown or bought in your fridge, here is a very quick and simple pickle to add a pop of flavour to summer meals.

Recipe adapted from the June edition of Waitrose Food magazine.

Hoping the week ahead is a good one for you.



  1. What a delight gardening is when you have such a wonderful little helper.

  2. How fantastic it's looking down at your allotment. And such an adorable little helper as well. I do so love to see children gardening. CJ xx

  3. Pleased to see the youngest member of the family has inherited the love of pottering in the garden!
