Am still here! When I do have some time in the evening I’ve been heading down the allotment, so the posting has been a bit sparse. However, a couple of things to note today and an obligatory picture of rhubarb.
Bought a bale of straw from Gorgie City Farm. 15 minutes later, we had manged to get it strapped into the bike trailer. It’s one of those things where it would be far quicker in a car (but I don’t have one) and I did get to have a chat with a couple of the farm workers in the interim, so I’m quite happy with the way it turned out.
Now I’ve got my strawberries protected by straw underneath and netting above, so I’m expecting a bumper crop.
Later this evening, my allotment neighbour gave me some roses that were blooming.
And here’s the haul of rhubarb from last week, all 4.4 kilos of it.
