Summer is the season where you truly do reap the fruits of your labour. In Mark's case, radishes from his section of allotment. His scout group have a plot, which they have subdivided and have earnestly planted and watered. I though they would get bored with it quickly, but it seems they have more staying power than I gave them credit for. And their radishes were wonderful.
Of course, I am the only member of the family who really likes radishes, which probably doesn't make them the finest choice of crop. But is fine by me. And they are photogenic. As is the new season's garlic.
Though this didn't come from the allotment - it's being grown on a slightly larger scale.
Recently, I stumbled across the Green and Gorgeous blog. They are flower (and vegetable!) growers, based on an organic farm, not far from me and I took the opportunity to visit this weekend, when they were open for the NGS. What a magical place. So magical that I have booked myself ono one of their courses. And am planing on making a return visit with my decent camera.
