Today I spent some time in the office allotment that we share with the architects in the office upstairs. Here are some photos.
At the moment it doesn't look like much, only the fruit bushes and rhubarb are thriving. That is of course because everything else has just been planted and hasn't had time to grow! We've planted parsnips, broad beans, lettuces, squashes, potatoes, asparagus and some herbs.
We take quite a relaxed view to weeds, so the edges of the garden are very weedy but that seems to be attracting a lot of bees, which can only be a good thing!
The wire fencing in the photo is to keep the sheep out and to help to deter the pheasants! Most of the time there aren't actually any sheep, but the landlord was planning on buying some and also some of the sheep from Gorgie City Farm come here for their holidays.
Tomorrow I'll be picking some rhubarb to make a crumble and I may do some weeding along the paths. But before any of that I'll be voting in the UK General Eleection! It promises to be the most interesting election we've had for years!
