…about my blog! I have been over to the allotment, mixed results. Potatoes look good, and the sugar snap peas are great, and the strawberries are pretty good. Red onions look great at the top but not much in the way of actual onion! On the downside, both carrots and tomatoes were a no show, although the 6 tomatoes my lottie neighbour gave me are doing well ,and although small are producing fruits. Out of 3 rows of beets only 3 plants have come up, but the Rhubarb is manic, I have so much, although I have now found some great recipes including smoothies. I made a rhubarb and apple cobbler which was fine except the recipe needs far more sugar, my lips tingled for ages after from the tartness!
I was given a gooseberry plant( not really a bush yet) which was doing really well , until one morning I looked and found all the leaves missing. A plague of caterpillars worked their way through every piece of foliage on it. Not sure if they hatched on the plant but I was not impressed. Shook them all off and I am hoping that it will recover.
