I love the beautiful colours in these fresh sage leaves from my herb garden!
I have 2 variations of salvia officinalis, one with bright green leaves, and one with purple-green leaves in a range of shades.
There isn’t any variation in taste, but I absolutely love the colours!
Found 3/4 of a tin of cream shed paint in the garage... Waste not want not and all that... Will need a few coats but can see the difference already.. Met some lovely new neighbours who have just taken the plot in front of ours, nice weather today hope its a sign of things to come.. 🤞🤞 #allotmentnewbies #allotmentgarden #allotment #shed #shedgoals #paint
First baby sunflower of the year 🌻 Cheering me up on these grey June days 🌞

What an exciting day today..
Decided to pull up just 2 (out of about 40) potato plants to see what lurks beneath and was amazed by my find!
First time ever growing from seed potatoes and was not disappointed.
I’m guessing that the two darker ones are the original seed potatoes, but not sure.. to eat or not to eat?
Oh, and enjoying the free raspberries and strawberries every day too!
I finally got around to planting out my sweetcorn. This had been delayed because I wanted a nice square of sweetcorn planted out to support pollination. Unfortunately, three of the corns didn't germinate and so I had to re-sow these and wait a week and a bit for them to become established. .
Then when I checked the space needed between plants I realised I didn't have enough space left in the bed and so they are a bit closer together then they should be. .
That bed is now full. In fact all the beds are now full. The only space left is under the fruit trees which is where I will plant the butternut squash. These will grow out over the asparagus bed as the asparagus has finished and the ferns should be a meter tall by the time the butternuts spread out beneath them.

I have a bunch of these in the squash patch. Tag was lost and I don’t know what it is 🤦♀️. I’m guessing a seminole pumpkin. However it could also be a sugar pie pumpkin or a ghost pumpkin... any guesses? #mysterysquash #allotmentgarden
