|St Ives Cornwall - Allotment - November 2016|
I headed out to my allotment this morning - a nice walk through Hellesveor and over the fields.
The overnight rain had cleared and it was relatively warm for November in Cornwall.
Today is her birthday - and she is celebrating in London with my other lovely daughter Steph.
This will actually root into the ground and grow on to form a strong willow framework.
More on that in a future blog post.
Remaining crops still growing include Leeks and Black Salsify. The Mustard Green Manure is still growing and in flower !
I may have to harvest these soon and store them in the freezer, rather than harvesting them fresh on Christmas Eve as I'd hoped.

I wondered whether to uncover them to allow a bit more space to grow. But I've decided to keep them under cover through Winter.
Some of it is still in black bin bags, which is a bit unsightly.
But I'll empty these into the bin in due course as space is created.

Winter is coming - but I'm still enjoying venturing out to my allotment - and still plenty to enjoy.
