Our first harvest! Our volunteers on Friday included a group of people from Nationwide Building Society, and some people who normally volunteer at the Kings Park Allotments. Having spent a long while pulling ragwort it was great to finally get back to gardening, and we unearthed most of the potatoes we’d planted in the spring. It wasn’t a massive harvest, thanks to the voracious slugs and snails in the wet spring, but plenty to share out amogst the volunteers. We also planted a cucumber plant which had been grown by Anne.
The photos show the divided harvest in bags, some of the washed potatoes, and the end result in my yummy salad.
