This week I’ve not got a great deal done on the allotment, but have been on the receiving end of a generous donation to my plot – I was offered two large clumps of Autumn-fruiting raspberry canes by my expert neighbour, Edwin.
Once separated out, the canes made a short row exactly where I was planning to buy canes to fill; I can’t wait to be able to take Amelia over to the plot this year to get picking. Raspberries are definitely a favourite, even over strawberries.
Also, we’re now flying the Lincolnshire flag on my plot. Partly a bird-deterrent, partly so that Amelia will be able to see which is our plot when walking by and partly just because.
I like it, at least!
