nessfoto8 Look what I dug up on my allotment today! What a wonderful harvest in January. I am pleased as they are my first carrots sown on what was a very overgrown plot when I took it on last spring and I spent all of spring and most of summer attacking giant weeds instead of sowing seeds.

It's a perfect day for vegetable garden planning with a nice cup of tea under a cosy blanket. The veg beds are being built in a week or so. Eeeek! So so excited. What are you all up to today?

  •   hollyehood How exciting! I love planning at this time of year. I was a little early buying my seeds this year but now it's been so long I'll have to revisit what I bought. Hurrah! 1mon

seekingthegoodlife • planting garlic •

Better late than never huh? Silly Christmas postal service. I now have 20 pots lined up like soldiers. I chose a French variety called Edenrose known for its distinctively strong garlickyness. Go big or go home right? Hoping they'll provide me with stinky garlic breath next year. Zut alors what garlicky breath you have Madame!

  •   gardeningfl Good luck with the garlic. I haven't true to grow garlic yet. 1mon
  •   rzrbkhog Our garlic is taking off quite well. I need to read up on when to harvest! 1mon
  •   katb28 Looking forward to watching your progress! 1mon
  •   couscous_jr Growing garlic is so easy & so much fun! Here in New York I plant mine by the end of October & harvest in very late June or beginning of July (the garlic tells me when it's ready!) 1mon
  •   lifebeginsinagarden I planted some in the fall I hope they grow. I see green and peeked inside looks like something is happening. I hope for some fresh garlic 1mon
  •   sunnybunnygardens So easy and so rewarding! 1mon

humanfemale Earlier at the allotment, I discovered several random parsnips. Must've germinated from seeds that blew away from last year's parsnip patch. I love Old Mother Nature #mothernature #allotmentlife #allotment #growyourown #kitchengarden #vegetableplot 3mon

jewelleryhannah Spending a couple of hours in my vegetable garden this beautiful autumn evening, with my golden friend whom you might recognise. I just love the sight of him glinting clean and bright in the sun against my dirty battered jewellers hands. I was convinced I should keep him as a brooch because of his past, but the more I pondered the more I felt being a brooch made him sad and trapped! I even added tiny chain loops first to see if he could be both, but he looked so cluttered. So I gently removed the brooch fittings so that not a single hair of detail was lost, and added a 64cm long fine 18ct gold cable chain. And now he is running free and happy, streaking through the fields, as I felt he deserved to be! #fox #foxnecklace #broochconversion #antiquejewelry #antiquejewellery #vegetableplot #allotment #love #lovegold #autumn #sunshine #runningfree #nofilter 4mon
