The pictures below we taken this morning. Last year when our plot was inspected by Hillingdon Borough Council for their annual allotment competition we lost points for not labelling our plants. It’s a conscious decision, I don’t like lots of tags all over the place, unless they’re those lovely embossed metal ones, and so, convinced I would remember I didn’t bother. Can I? Well what do you think?
I know there are some Mount Everest, a climbing variety, they took one look at the bamboo trellis we had constructed and clung steadfastly to the ground limpet like, and there are some Florence. Both of these varieties came from Blackmoor. We also were given some runners by Ken Muir when we went to collect our fruit trees, possibly Elsanta or perhaps Honeyone.
It looks as if we will have a good crop this year but what it will be I’m not really sure.
