Yesterday afternoon at the allotment: Our russet apple trees have been freshly underplanted with sweet woodruff, English bluebells, Monarda and Brunnera, and the beds with new potatoes, Jerusalem artichokes, and two kinds of sorrel: Red-Veined and De Belleville. I am trying to germinate Indian Sorrel (R. vesicarius), although that will not cope with the open conditions of our allotment; it will have to be grown somewhere warm and steamy. The first wave of radish and salad leaf seeds has been sown. Radish-wise, we’ve gone for Black Spanish Round, Zlata, Malaga Violet, and French Breakfast and, as usual, we’ve planted too many leaves: Mizuna, Wasabina, Red Giant Mustard,
It looks delicious!
This post has rhubarb, triffids, and Cathy Barrow in it. What’s not to love?
Marvellous. We need more writing about rhubarb! And I love Stacey’s book too
I love this, and it's a joy to follow along with the allotment on Twitter too. Such a great reminder of the joy of gardening!
