Nice article by Dan Pearson in this week’s Observer magazine on what to grow on your allotment this year.

I think I might take his advice on the french beans this time round as the dwarf variety I grew last year were buckling under their own weight midway through the season:

Another mini harvest tonight – this time of my red shallots that have got away from me slightly, though to be honest I wasn’t sure when to dig them up. I also took quite a few pictures of the other things that are growing in my garden…*obsessed*

The only thing I’m avoiding doing is weeding…maybe I’ll get the dog on that one… “Midge!”…

My first potatoes…they made a lovely sunday lunch!

Fresh and sweet – I present my first peas! These are a variety called “Kelvendon Wonder” and they’re lovely.

I hope the slugs don’t get him!

Take a look at some more of my Ragged Radishes pics on Flickr.

Couple of cute little pickings I made accidentally whilst weeding…whoops. They made lovely mini veg though!

More about Ragged Radishes…

Ragged Radishes is the garden allotment blog of Lucy Crosbie (that's me). As a novice allotment owner, I took on plot no. 27 at the Burras Lane site in Otley, West Yorkshire in Oct 2006. I've now moved to a lovely house with a large garden in Knaresborough.

Have a read, or just a nosey around and please feel free to comment on my posts and photos...
