Week 26: Picking Produce and Progress on the Plot…

A quiet week doing the Allotment with mixed weather of sunshine and showers. A few more Gladioli picked (and presented to friends as a gift) with the tomatoes used at home in cooking a pasta sauce.

Next week, I shall focus upon some weeding of the pathways as well as reviewing the Strawberry Patch as the small new buds are not growing quickly and according to Gardeners World, I should have trimmed back the leaves and removed dead ones (which I have done).

And hope that more Winter crops arrive. My Senshyu Onions have arrived and I have planted these out (in the Garden) to get them going so when they have some leaves, I shall transplant over to the Plot.

At home, preparations for Winter planting has started with delivery of my Senshyu Onions set (50) which have been planted in trays.
