Allotment news: September's bounty
We are now well into September, the kids have returned back to school and the allotment still has plenty of wonderful produce to offer us. In light of this I thought I would give you a little update of what healthy fruit and veg is on my kitchen table this month.
As usual come September in West London there’s been plenty of opportunities to dance between the rain drops, but this hasn’t damped my allotment spirit, far from it. This is due to wonderful abundance of produce still available to us this time of year. I’m happy to report that we are still collecting a good amount of raspberry’s, apples, pears and grapes, so I won’t be going short on fruit this autumn and winter. The tomatoes, basil, spinach and beans are still going strong.
As we head towards autumn at break neck speed the new kids on my allotment block are the cauliflowers, sweetcorn, carrots, and chilli’s which again seem to be in plentiful supply. With all this glorious bounty I’m definitely feeling a kitchen cook-up of spicy Chilli Con Carne and a comforting Shepherd’s pie and cauliflower cheese. Yum!
For the first time ever I’m doing the London Marathon Walk for charity next week, so look out for my blog on this. I’ll need all the nutrition my allotment can offer me, as I estimate a 9 hour walk from the start to the finish line.
Here are few photo’s to celebrate all nature’s glorious bounty on the allotment at the moment, and I hope they will give you the inspiration you might need to get outdoors and try and grow a little produce for yourself.
