We had to walk up to the Allotment to collect our car after yesterday's barbecue. Unfortunately it's a drenching and chilly day so we didn't stay long. This post is a bit random, hopefully you'll find a few 'hmmm' moments....
We picked three of the Tigerella tomatoes which are lovely and ripe - we're having a mozerella and tomato salad tonight. I've got more Aviditas and Redcurrant tomatoes for lunches - blight has struck most of the site so we need to get through them before it reaches our plot/greenhouse.
And the last picture of wonder is from the I Love My Allotment Facebook group. Never has one of my posts ever caused so much interest. But then, the moulded cucumbers really are cool!

Unfortunately the sunflower head which I was attempting to dry in the greenhouse isn't looking so good - this is how it looked when I picked it. Quite beautiful isn't it?
I saw a recipe the other day for a sliced courgette which reminded me of Hasselback potatoes, so I made this for my dinner - so delicious and looks so interesting! I baked everything, sprinkled with chilli oil and then added cheese for the final 20 minutes.
Our Glass Gem sweetcorn are very tall and have quite a few flowers and a few cobs now. Some of the cobs have red tassles to match their red male flowers - I hope they survive to produce full cobs. The magpies have been spotted tucking into our Lark sweetcorn on the other plot :-(

So, did you go hmm at all? C&C Music Factory come up with some alternative reasons to do so :-)
