Cabbages and Marigolds

I haven’t been to the allotment all weekend – damn! We’ve been up in London working (boo!). And now it’s Sunday night, I’m exhausted and it’s raining. Hmmm…. I think the elements are conspiring against me so we’ll make a fresh start tomorrow. I took this picture on Thursday last week. I planted some marigolds inbetween the four cabbage plants the slugs left for us. I think they look great together and the flowers should attract some friendly bugs our way. Oh and I thinned out the perpetual spinach plants and we ate the thinnings. Our first REAL harvest – wow it tasted so good! – a bit gritty (must wash leaves more thoroughly next time) but great all the same.
