Our lovely allotment in Hungerford, Berkshire. Photos of planting, harvesting, (occasional) vegetarian cooking and wildlife to show what makes Plot 7 (Plot 8 and Plot 3) such a great place to spend time!
A record of successes, failures and it's a handy reminder for me too!
2017 brings a song title and video to every post - enjoy!
Summer turned to Autumn last week - now the nights are going to be longer than the days, although the signs have been appearing for a few weeks now.
Some of the plants have shown a recent spurt of new growth as it's been a reasonably warm September.
We're still eating plenty from the plot and I'm not yet bored of roast vegetables but Jamie has been for a while now. Sadly, for him, the courgettes and Patty Pans just keep on producing :-) He's happy that it's Hungerford Food Festival at the weekend because he's got the excuse of saving veg for the HAHA stand - not all the veg though!
This little trayful includes our first Kohl Rabi of the year - it was very
tasty just roasted along with the other vegetables and those are some Silverskin onions which failed to produce enough for a jar of pickled onions because of the sluggy start to the year.
We had an allotment holders skittles night at the weekend - it was really good fun. Not so many people turned out as they did in January, but there were plenty of us to have a good entertaining competition.
HAHA versus the Royal British Legion and HAHA won :-) And not just because I was recording the scores - with a little help from my friends!!
