Six on Saturday 27/3/2021

27 Mar

There is so much  happening in the garden now as Spring really takes hold. There is plenty of work to do too, both in the garden and in the allotment.

1.  Today I have moved lots of Snowdrops ‘in the green’ to go around the newly planted Amanagowa Flowering Cherry.

2.  The tulips are beginning to give us colour, some very short as I commented earlier in the week and some the height I was expecting.

3.  It’s lovely to see shoots and buds, anticipating the loveliness to come. The Clematis Montana has lots of buds.

4.  The Lily of the Valley are sprouting well with tiny flower buds just beginning to show.

5.  We are still harvesting the Flower Sprouts / Kalettes and enjoying having fresh greens. We are astounded by how regal they look and how tall they are in their raised bed.

6.  Tonight I made two more Little Puddings as the ones I made the other night were so delicious with Blueberries. These I made with slender pale pink stalks of Rhubarb from the plant which we inherited on our allotment – our first produce from Plot 30.

If you’d like to look around some more gardens, pop over to The Propagator where he gives you Six on Saturday and there are lots of links in the comments.

    There is really so much going on in the gardens and allotments. Wonderful food and beauty all around you! I have only recently tried Kalettes, I didn’t know what they were. They were really nice!

      We really like them steamed in garlic butter with only the water that stays on from washing them. We’ve loved having them so close to hand. Next year we’ll have to walk to the allotment to get them – but it’s only five minutes! 🙂

    I was sent some kalette seeds from an Instagram “friend” last year, and they were the slowest growing things ever! Then, just as those adorable little kalettes were forming the plants were just covered with aphids. I threw them out. Beautiful plants, one was purple.

      What a shame! You could perhaps put a fine net over them if you grow them again. They really are very tasty, much nicer than sprouts. 🙂
