Cooking,  Growing

An August weekend on the allotment

From August onwards it can be very busy both on the plot and in the kitchen as the efforts move towards cropping and storing our harvests. However, we are still thinking about second cropping and we have planted out a few of the later crops we sowed a couple of weeks ago in the greenhouse. We found the very first signs of blight on our spuds – see what we did to save the crop and keep prepare the potatoes for storage. We also harvested our onions, enjoyed the wildlife and made a few preserves – we are always busy at Don’t Crop Me Now!
