Allotment flowers and our fruit plot is completed

Yesterday my husband went to the allotment to collect the remaining strawberry plants that he had potted up from the runners and to dig out three more raspberry plants now that we have taken out our runner beans.

He surprised me with a huge bunch of flowers. They were the flowers from the jerusalem artichokes. They had been blown over by the wind plus we don’t them to drop their seed but it seemed a shame to waste them. They filled two vases and look wonderful.

I planted the strawberry plants and raspberry canes in what is now our fruit plot.

We now have strawberries one side and raspberries on the other side with an asparagus plant at the patio end of each side. The fruit plot will remain all year round and as it matures should yield a good crop of fruit and we will still have plenty of veg from our two shared allotment plots.

I am looking forward to seeing this plot mature and to having lots of lovely fruit in the future.
