It was so sunny and warm today that I ran off to the allotment instead of doing the things I was supposed to be doing (packaging things up - I'm not a machine...).
It occured to me whilst there that I am now harvesting loads more than I did all summer.
Today I picked:
Peas (late sowing and they tasted bitter, but harvested they were)
Parsnips (big ones - hurrah - I couldn't wait any longer to look)
Cape Gooseberries (not ripe and probably never will be as it was such a cool year, but maybe in the bay window...)
Grass and clover (for the guinea pigs, I'm not a forager)
and all the winter onions and garlic have started growing properly now, keep coming sunshine...
