So, I will give you all a new allotment update from what has happened in our beloved large allotment garden? Let’s see,..
Hi, I greet you here in our beloved garden in full sunshine! 🙂
Here you see the last of the pumpkins on the field,… You can spot the lovely red-orange Japanese Uchiki Kuri on the left & the lovely big green Musque de Provence from France on the right side of course! In the middle, you see one of 6 American Butternut Pumpkins. Here below is one of 6 New Zealand Spinach plants! We ate a lot of the lovely spinach & it all grw back quickly too! We already froze a whole lot for later in Wintertime! 😉
We carried many pumpkins into this lovely carriage to the car! We needed to harvest them because of the frost!
We still have a few long yellow beans & green long beans because we only planted them late! We ate about 3 kg yellow beans & the rest we froze to enjoy later in the year.
We have had about 2 kg long green beans. There are a lot still growing but it is a small plot. We grow vertical here! 🙂 The plot is only 1.5 meters x 1.5 meters.
You see, I know that you would love these long green beans! It is all about the flavor, flavor, flavor!
What else has happened?
We have been eating many of the black kale leaves, always taken from the bottom of the plant. We ate a lot but you can’t see it on the plant! It regrows again & again! 🙂 Very yummy too! 🙂
There is still growing a lot in our cold frame. We opened it up in Full Summer. There are 3 flat-leaf parsley plants, 2 bunches of spring onions, still small though, 1 Chioggia beet & the 2nd sow of asian cut away leaves. You still see on the oft, the last of the Summer purslane.
Now, we end with 2 of the last Summer beets, Bolivar! 🙂
So, I hope you enjoyed the tour! Soon we can eat harvest a few of the topinambours, aka Jerusalem artichokes. There is a white cabbage growing under the net. It needs to grow a whole lot bigger before we can harvest it. We still have about 5 Summer leeks under the net. We must eat a whole lot of NZ Spinach. In Wintertime, we only going to plant garlic bulbs & wild leek bulbs. For the rest, we must prepare the soil for Winter. We don’t know yet whet new things we will be growing,…We are still thinking! 🙂 See you all soon! 🙂 ♥ Stay Tuned & subscribe by email! Join 1,800 email subscribers now!!! It is free!!!!
