I found a small, almost red tomato on the ground by the plants which is now on the window sill ripening, but the rest are still mostly various shades of green.
I’ve started lifting the red maincrop Desiree potatoes and there’s plenty of them. The majority are good sized and undamaged so I’ll be storing these for use through the winter.
I have two clumps of red crocosmia (‘Lucifer’) which plot neighbour George gave me several years ago. These are the ones down at the bottom south-west corner. You can also see some red runner bean flowers in the top left corner of the picture.
There are also plenty of red nasturtiums, along more raspberries and the few strawberries that I mentioned last week, and have now picked and eaten.
Although allotmenteers are generally peaceful folk there are times when they do see red as you can read in Losing the plot – discord and disputes down at the allotment.
Have a good weekend!
