Down on the Allotment - June

We have neglected the allotment for a fortnight, which is not a wise thing to do at this time of year as the weeds have been thriving with all the recent rain. Luckily, however, other crops have also been doing very well, here are a few photos of plot 51 in June.

A small harvest



At last we're beginning to take home more than muddy boots and aching limbs! The first potatoes were dug, a couple of globe artichokes picked along with some bobby beans, a handfull of gooseberries, jostaberries and blackcurrants and a lovely big bunch of sweetpeas.

We had jostaberry, blackcurrant, apple and gooseberry crumble for tea using the ever faithful crumble recipe from The River Cottage Family Cookbook Delicious!

It looks like you have the touch. Everything looks delicious. (I'm totally jealous.) :)
