Allotment afternoon

Have had a fairly quiet day - thank goodness :-)

My mid-life crisis is clearly now well-and-truly established, as the highlight of a visit to the allotment this afternoon was discovering a late-flowering (and differently coloured!) water-lily in the pond!

What can you say ...

... anyhow, other excitements included our first crop of baby-sweetcorn (didn't grow them last year), and some early brussel sprouts - along with an abundance of flowers.

Dug more leaf-mould in to a couple of the beds, and will get those late-cropping potatoes in very soon ... allotment sprouts and potatoes looking increasingly likely as part of the Xmas-day fayre :-)
