26th April 2015 - Picked this week and allotment update

 It's blossom time at the allotment - one of the cherries is in full flower, and the other in bud

The established pear tree is covered in just-breaking buds with apples soon to follow. Some more sunny days should see it at its prettiest.

 Surprisingly my allotment trip this week turned up a lot of produce - spinach that's much bigger than that growing at home, some american land cress

two almost forgotten leeks, the first rhubarb

brassica bits in the shape of bolting brussels, which might get eaten as 'broccoli',and the tiny heart of a cabbage

more of the long white radish
