I was hoping to have a couple of hours on the allotment this morning working. Well I had a couple of hours, but only worked for just over and hour. I ended up spending the rest of the time chatting with a fellow plot holder about various things, but nothing to do with plants and gardening which was rather odd. Anyway, it was great to chat with him. I did however manage to harvest all of my Kohl Rabi. In fact there were 21 of them! I’ve already harvested some, and they’ve done really well this year, I’m very pleased with them. Now all I need to do is to peel them and then cut them into chunks and freeze them. When we have a casserole then I’ll put some in.
Once this bed was emptied, I then removed the few weeds that were about and then planted out my Celeriac. This was sown a little on the late side, but has caught up well in the greenhouse and in their individual 3 inch pots. Some were still on the small side, but some aren’t doing too badly. I don’t think they’ll be huge as celeriac goes, but as long as the bulb swells up fairly well I won’t mind. They won’t need harvesting until the end of autumn so they’ve still got time.
Then just before I left (I had promised the kids I’d be home for lunch), I harvested some more Potatoes and a few more French Beans. Some of the Potatoes are ready to come up, but others aren’t quite there. Which is fine by me, as then I can harvest as and when we need them. The French Beans are just starting to fruit. I’ve got loads of flowers, so give it a couple more weeks and then I’ll have more than I know what to do with.
Well that’s it for today. George is swimming this afternoon and Emily and I are making cakes and stuff. See you tomorrow hopefully.
