I haven't been up to the allotment for a couple of days, so I went up today and found lots of little jobs that needed urgent attention. The first big job was to cut the comfrey back as it was so overgrown that it was hiding two courgette plants. I will never be able to use it all myself, so I'll give some away to other plot holders to make comfrey tea. It might stink but it's a great tonic for the plants. I will add some to the compost bins as well as it's a good accelerator and adds lots of goodness to the compost.
Then I had some weeding to do, lot's of weeding ! The 'Munchkin' squashes grown this year from seeds kindly sent to me by Kella ( where is that girl ?? she hasn't posted for ages !! ) anyway back to the Munchkins, they have taken over vast amounts of space on the plot, meandering here and there and sprouting baby munchkins all over the place, we had a tiny one (accidentally cut off too early) for dinner this evening, steamed with all the other veg we had and it was delicious.
My harvest today consisted of :
1 large swede
2 munchkin squashes
2 large 'Abraham Lincoln' tomatoes
lots of cherry tomatoes
2 long green courgettes
1 very overgrown large round green courgette
