Life on the plot is very busy at the moment. Everything is growing very well. We are picking runner beans, french beans, purple french beans, beetroot, courgettes and our raspberries are still producing delicious fruits.
The tomatoes in our greenhouse at home are ripening, very slowly. The cucumbers have suddenly decided to go mad! I’ve also grown lemon cucumbers, not sure what they will taste like. For the first time ever, I have very respectable peppers.
With the surplus veg I have made the most amazing allotment relish. If you have a glut of courgettes, has I do, relish uses a large amount of them.
It’s been a wonderful 1st year for us on the plot, growing your own is definitely rewarding. The taste and freshness alone are worth all of the hard work. Meeting other growers, swapping surplus produce and chatting about success or failure is great. I would recommend an allotment to anyone. I’m definitely in favour of the peace and stress free environment it provides.
I would also like to say a very big thank you to all of the other bloggers, you are an inspiration. I enjoy catching up with all of you.
