YEAR OF THE TRUG

Every week the trug and I visit the alottment. Here is a snapshot from the past four seasons. As you can see the trug has been very busy but couldn’t help with the pumpkins in October.

We start in June 2013. Round courgettes, cabbages and lettuce.
We start in June 2013 as this is the first full trug from the veg planted in May. Round courgettes, cabbages and lettuce abound. The courgettes continued to produce two a day for nearly three months!
August 2013 brings us cauliflower, gooseberries, black currants and purple french beans and carrots.

The trug wasn’t much help with the pumpkins, but instead it looked pretty with a batch of sweet peppers.

Its now March 2014 and its the last leeks, parsnips and red cabbage. Broccoli and spinach is still going. And at last the spring onions! They took ages to grow.
