Muhahahahah allotment spoils!
A lot of the US gardening tumblrs have been posting harvests for a few weeks; however, us Manchester lot - the same growing climate as Norway - have had to suffer in silence! No more!
We harvested a bag of strawberries - to be scoffed raw and made into trifle and cordial - and some sweet smelling sweet peas - they absolutely are perennials, don’t let anyone tell you to dig them up once they are done flowering. Additionally some broccoli (pre-buttoned; why is broccoli so difficult to grow!?), mange tout and a smattering of herbs from our ridiculous herb gardens (mint, chives, and sage today; thyme and parsley yesterday).
And I’m starting to get flowers in my garden here at the house (photos of ridiculous blooms to follow in 2-3 weeks). I did another round of lettuce/salad, carrots, beets, and radish too.
All whilst sunning myself and reading for my next empirical chapter. Feeling pretty, pretty good.
PhD will soon change that!
