Tuesday 7th March 2017 – Let’s lance that broccoli!

A glorious day today, so where better to spend the morning than up the allotment. Lots more sorting out again today, it’s surprising what you accumulate over 11 years! This time I broke down the large compost heap I have, and spread the contents out in some neighbouring beds. The outside of the compost heap was made from old wooden pallets, but over the years the bottoms have rotted away. So when I pulled them up the bottom of the pallet stayed on the ground. I loaded more stuff into the car, all wood this time, and took that off to the recycling centre. I also harvested some more of my sprouting broccoli “Lancer Mixed”. Here’s how I did it, it’s very easy…

We’ll have that with dinner tonight and I’ll sauté it like I did before. Here’s how I cooked it, just incase you missed it before….

As the weather is very slowly warming up I also noticed that my rhubarb is starting to come through, which means that spring is nearly here.


So another busy morning. I won’t be able to get back down to the allotment until Friday as I’m working the next couple of days. Still it’s not going anywhere. Let’s hope the weather stays fine.
