Allotment in winter
Cold, wet and full of weeds describes my allotment at the moment. I haven't been there for weeks, not since before the snow, before Christmas so I can't really expect it to look like a model garden.
A few edibles lurking amongst the weeds though, the leeks don't look great but they tasted good,
and a few leaves of chard that the deer have missed.
When we get some milder weather I will go back and clear some of the weeds. I had hoped to do that today but its snowing again. The snow is melting as soon as it hits the ground so it doesn't look as if it will stay but definitely not gardening weather for this fair weather gardener!
Instead I'm looking at a couple of pictures I took last summer to remind me that it won't be long before everything starts growing again.
Also a reminder not to be too thorough with my weeding, those foxgloves are so pretty.
