Our purple patch of perfection 💜. A few weeks back I planted up some purple kale, broccoli, Brussels and cabbage in this patch. Some things got eaten by slugs but we still have some plants doing well.  Hopefully we’ll have some nice things to harvest over winter. #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #allotment #purpleveggies #gyo #growyourown #ediblegarden #vegetablegarden

Winter may seem a dull time with no garden jobs. But I've been busy busy planning, planting and getting things ready for next year!  To hopefully have barrow loads of flowers again 💐

Ok so underground - digging out a bed in order to transplant some phormium’s at the weekend - found these lily bulbs - I think regale - beautiful shape and colour then also bamboo root which appeared edible - (well I’m not dead yet ) and a root of Tetrapanax Rex most likely - all of which replanted or experimenting with root cuttings #bamboo #rootcutting #lilies #allotmentlife #allotmentuk #allotment #garden #gardening #greenfingers #growplants #veggies#growvegatables #growvegetables #growveggies #ukgarden

“You are creative with food” my sister said to me this evening. “Well when Andy insists on giving me 10 tonnes of pumpkin I kinda have to be” 😂 
I’m still working my way through the original pumpkin never mind the one I’ve been cutting up this evening; see my story.

Today I’ve been down my new allotment starting to clear the crazy weeds and grass 😱
As you know I had to give up my allotment of 8 years earlier this year as I moved into the city 😢
I’ve just got my hands on this new allotment and it’s super weird starting all over again but tbh it’s also very exciting!! 😆
So today my priority was to create some space for my raspberry & gooseberry canes. The soil has clearly been cultivated, it’s awesome - quite sandy so very different to the heavy soil at my old plot. 
It poured with rain, I got drenched & muddy but I was literally in my element 👩🏻‍🌾🤓🤪 I could have ‘shed’ a tear when a rainbow appeared! 🌈 
I’m just super happy to be growing my own again after a year off 😅😍👍🏻🙌🏻🤗

Tomatoes and potatoes planted a little bit late but planted none the less. With 20 of our 25 beds currently under tarps we have decided to try and make the most of the uncovered 5. Soil turned by hand in these two beds to incorporate the bad compost which should neutralise the pH levels. Potatoes dug in and tom's with weed mat, the remaining three beds will be planted with greens when our rotary hoe is fixed - fingers crossed the part arrives soon. A huge thank-you to @provenancegrowers for these awesome tomato seedlings - you've saved our tomato season!

It’s getting cold which means one thing - a big old pot of homemade chilli for dinner 🥘 Made with these deeeelish peppers from the greenhouse (literally picked today - Nov 19th! - wuuut???) and onions from the garden.

I am very glad that I ended up planting these turnips.  It seemed like wishful thinking when I planted them so late in the season, and I had plans to mostly eat them as greens.  But here I am, months later, with a good crop happily sitting under a tarp, keeping me feed with something fresh from the garden. 
One of the things I enjoy most about gardening, is the low risk adventures you can take.  Throw a handful of seeds in the ground, worst case scenerio, nothing grows.  But you can only reap what you sow, so plant a bit of hope!

Uh, good to know @growyourownmag 
I wonder how they figured that out? I mean they couldn't have been trying different vegetables on explosives to see if they worked. That is not what normal people do! 😂

So as predicted...I’ve re designed again! I don’t want box shapes all round and after stalking some other allotments and insta allotments I decided triangles where the way forward! I also quickly realised that I didn’t need to use all the space to plant! That may change but for next year 5 areas to plant is what I’m going to aim for! Exciting 😁😁#allotmentlife #growingveggies #allotmentuk #allotmentgarden #allotment #plot109 #learningaswegrow #allotmentlove #allotmentideas #allotmenteering #allotmentnewbies

What do you do when you take on an allotment that is more weeds than soil (both alive and dead) and has been covered with impermeable black tarp for over a year starving the soil of water and nutrients? Green manure the hell out of it and hope for the best!!

This flower is growing in the front garden. Not sure exactly what it is but we grew some last year and the seeds must have eventually found their way to the front garden.

Au menu ce soir, velouté de potimarron et lait de coco, filet de bar grillé, chicons braisés et purée de patates douces.
Et vous quelles sont vos recettes avec les légumes de cette saison?

‘Aye up, you got any food?’ These guys are constantly ravenous at the moment! Must be slim pickings on the slug front now the weather is turning colder.

“Mama, vijg klaar? Samen kijken?” Vanmorgen weer heerlijk in de tuin en kas gerommeld. Altijd even de vijgen checken. Er hangen er nog 3. Voor het eerst dit jaar laat ik de boom overwinteren in de kas. Direct kunnen we een tweede leg vijgen oogsten. Geniaal en favoriet van Alena. Zie je dat kleine vijgenboompje links ernaast? Mijn moeder en ik kochten tegelijk een mini boompje. De linker is de hare en de rechter de mijne. 🤣. Ik heb de hare maar tijdelijk geadopteerd. Eens kijken of ik hem net zo groot kan krijgen als z’n broer 😍💚✌🏻 #makkelijkemoestuin #moestuin #moestuinieren #allotment #allotmentlife #widn #greenfingers #growyourownfood #growyourown #figs #groenten #vegetables #tuin #buiten #greenlife #moederdochter #family #365 #happy

Growing food on an allotment takes alot hard work. It's something that if I'm honest, I have no interest in getting my hands dirty planting and weeding  and what ever else it is that my mum does on the allotment. But I love being in the fortune position that means I can just reap the rewards. 
It doesn't mean though that I take the hard work for granted. We should never take the work that others put in for granted, and appreciate what is done for us.

Now excuse me while I go turn these potatoes into tasty chips 😋

Keeping things fishy with @inverawe smoked haddock kedgeree and a soft boiled @Clarence_court egg tonight 🇮🇳
.
For authenticity arguments sake; kedgeree recipes usually call for coriander. I’ve substituted this for parsley; coriander is the devil herb and tastes like shower gel...anyone else?! I’m not a fussy eater by any means but it’s the only thing I can’t stomach the taste of.
.
This recipe and more are up on the blog, you’ll find the link in my bio🍴

My beautiful edible organic salad bouquet from @grounded.enterprises 🌿 I genuinely didn't know that salad could be spicy! But some these leaves had a mustardy spice to them, definitely mixed it up a bit!

There's just no poo that works better in the garden than rabbit poop. It has all the amazing benefits of horse and steer manure but with a distinct advantage. Because it's considered a cold manure, you don't have to let rabbit poop age or compost before you use it. Other manures that come from chickens, sheep, horse, cows, and pigs are hot manures, these need to be composted for months before you can safely use them in your garden beds otherwise you will burn your plants to death. Rabbit poop fertilizer can truly change your garden, and if you have rabbits you have an endless supply of droppings at your disposal, just like I have right here. Did you Know that rabbit manure has four times more nutrients than cow or horse manure and it's twice as rich as chicken manure. Rabbit manure is packed with nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, minerals and micronutrients, they also contain trace elements of sulfur, calcium, copper and magnesium. We have been using our rabbit poo-balls in the garden for quite some time now and the results are amazing!  Let me share with you how we use it in the garden. 
Rabbit Pellets as a Super Fertiliser - Sprinkle a handful of poo-balls around your garden and let them slowly release nutrients into the soil. As they do break down, they build your soil's structure, improve the porosity, add stability, and hold nutrients for plants as well as other organisms in the soil.

Give Transplants a Boost.
When you are digging a new hole for a transplant to your garden, add a little rabbit poop into the whole before putting the plant in. This give the roots and instant fertilizer to tap into.

Compost Rabbit Poop
Rabbit droppings are wonderful additions to your compost. They will add a rich boost of nitrogen to your compost pile and I have found they break down pretty quickly. #growyourown #growyourownfood

#tomatoesnottogrow
You always hear people talk about their #gyo triumphs but you very rarely hear people talk about the things they won’t be growing again and the reasons why. I grew 23 varieties of tomatoes this year and of that 23 I think at a push I’d grow 6 of them again. For most of us space is at a premium so it can be very annoying to waste space on something that’s not worth it. Similarly time is also very precious and it can be a right head melter to spend months tending to something for you to end up hating it. So with all that in mind I’m going to be posting the varieties I won’t be growing again and the reasons why. First up is Current Sweet Pea. Tomatoes the size of red currents that are meant to be very sweet and tasty. Well the tomatoes might be small but the plants ain’t! The top picture is from the site I got the seeds from, the green toms on the blue background are ones I grew. The reason I have no photo of my own ripe ones is I had to rip all the plants out before any more had ripened. They absolutely took over! As you can see from the bottom right picture. They wrapped themselves around the rest of the plants and were really starting to smoother everything. It was an impossible task to try keep them cut back and from taking over. So considering the time, water, effort and space they were taking up I didn’t think they were worth it. They didn’t even taste that good tbh. I’ll be posting about this all week so keep an eye out if tomatoes are your thing. I’m interested to hear others opinions on varieties not to grow so if your talking about the subject use #tomatoesnottogrow so I can find ya!

Photo proof that I really did plant the garlic. 😗 My to-do list before the "end of the season" (does the season ever really end though?): ✔plant the garlic - replant and mulch the strawberries 🍓 - weed all the beds 🌱 - fertilize the beds 💩 - mulch the beds 🍃 - plan the next year's garden 📝 - get (buy and/or exchange) seeds for next year 🍅🌻🥔 . . . . . . #garden #garlic #permaculture #nodig #gardener #growfood #ediblegarden #urbangardening #fallgarden #kitchengarden #backyardgarden #allotment #organicgardening #instagarden #growyourown #homegrown #vegpatch #femalegardener #thegoodlife #homesteading #sustainable #greenthumb #gardenersofinstagram #inmygarden #farmher #growyourownmedicine #vegetablegarden #homegrown #growsomethinggreen

Have you every had the feeling that the less is left to finish a task, the more it seems that it is never going to finish?
Apart from lots of interesting things about agriculture, composting, plants and insects and so on, I am also learning other valuable gardening lessons like patience, perseverance and humility. 
On the second picture you can see what is left of the weeds - I call it the resistance 😁 It may seem little compared to all the space I `ve already cleaned up, but it also is the hardest bit with marsh horsetail that stoically defends its ground and it`s backed by a climbing plant that tied all the plants together so that the weeding resembles a kind of tug-of-war. Little by little,  but I am so looking forward to see a clean plot under those weeds.
