autumn elevenses at the plot

autumn elevenses

Still snacking on raspberries, runner beans, dwarf beans and rocket to fuel me through to the next tea break.  We’ve had no rain in Gloucester for two weeks and it’s amazing how little water plants such as these need to keep producing.

      the beans are at the end of their growing season so will get pulled out just as soon as I can get a fork in the ground!

    Hi, we are also enjoying the Indian summer and the extra produce it is bringing.Our beans are still producing though a little slower, when do you decide to pull them out ?

    I was going to say when there are no beans left and I get round to it. Then today I spotted one of the plants in the yard has new flowers on and a few teeny pods. Unbelievable as it hasn’t been watered in 3 weeks and the last bean was picked over a month ago. So I may just leave the allotment beans in and see what happens (and give them a good water :o)

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
