Perfect autumnal weather in my book, exactly what today ended up being after a frosty start. The first thing I did after arriving at the plot was inspect the dahlias, they’re still clinging on but looking noticeably darker from the frost.
Below is how this flower bed looked in September:
My cut flower bed was the talk of the allotment site this summer, I also scooped 3rd prize for my cut flowers in our village show in September! Woop!
I finished lifting the last of the Charlotte potatoes and pulled up some whoppers which will be great for making chips.
The brassica cages all got a weeding and removal of yellowing lower leaves. I have some great looking winter savoy cabbages hearting up, the cold just starting to add a purple/pink tinge to the leaves of this variety which is January King.
The Brussels Sprouts are also looking great:
To top off a good day on the plot I harvested my first cauliflower of the year.
This variety is All The Year Round and I planted them out beginning of August from memory, it was a lovely surprise to see one ready.
