Allotment Hoard

I love the feeling when you come away from the allotment with a huge crop of homegrown goodies! Especially when its a mixture of freshly picked flowers and just dug edible treats.

Everything on the plot is doing really well, despite the ground being super dry at the moment. I’m probably very naughty and rarely water the allotment, something I learnt from some of the older plot holders, it seems to have worked though and plants which have grown used to drier soil conditions are now flourishing rather than flopping in the heat. This helps with the water level in the water butts too!

Today I left the plots with my arms full of Dahlia blooms, Sunflowers, Cosmos, my first ever Sweet peas, New Potatoes, Onions and a couple of shallots and broad beans (I’m sure I’ve missed something!)
