Fun on the allotment.

I'm a student, chef, gardner, photographer and general procrastinator. On the 5th November 2011 I inherited an old battered allotmentand started this blog so people can watch as I work and play to make it my dream larder.
Getting ready for winter …
I’m a little early, but I never really caught up after going to the states. So instead of continuing a loosing battle to cultivate I’m taking the final harvests and covering over the beds for winter.
Also, having just started a new job and so having less free time, this allows me to concentrate on the remaining (and still productive) crops.
Harvested a load of spuds, carrots and kale earlier today, and I’m in the process of preparing them for a roast dinner tonight.
I also caught up with my neighbour today, who I had hadn’t seen for around 6 weeks. A mixture of holidays and missing each other at the allotment. It’s funny how allotments makes friends of strangers.

p.s. Many thanks to everyone who helped with the plant ID! Much appreciated!!
