Wednesday 17th August 2016 – My first Cabbage

Another glorious day today. We really are being spoilt. I’m sure it’ll come to an end soon. The Met Office have said that we’re due rain by the end of the week and it’s supposed to get very windy as well. But we’ll see if that happens. I had a very productive morning today harvesting more Potatoes, which means that 2 beds are now done, just another one to do!! I also harvested some more Spring Onions. The fascinating thing about the difference between the ones you harvest in the UK and the ones you harvest in Spain is quite extraordinary.

My Spring Onions. A good size even if I say so myself.

Think those are impressive, just take a look at the ones we found in Spain.

What they feed their Spring Onions in Spain I have no idea!!

I also tidied the bed that the Peas and Radish were growing in as well as harvested my first Cabbage of the year. Here’s what I got up to today in a little more detail.

  1. Awesome update thank you for sharing have blessed weekend

    • You to Linda. I’m hoping to get in the greenhouse at home this weekend. It’s raining at the moment, and is supposed to get really windy later. Best place to hide is in the greenhouse.

    Claire, weeds do seem to grow faster when you are away. This time of the year I can’t get into the garden as much as I would like due to grandson school responsibilities so the weeds begin to get ahead of me. They are doomed as the first frost date creeps ever closer. It will arrive in about 50 more days here. It’s hard for me to believe that the garden year is winding down and Fall is almost here.

    Have a great cabbage day on the allotment.

  3. I bet your spring onions taste so much better than the supermarket spring onions. You can’t beat homegrown on your allotment.
