My calla lily has just produced a bloom, rather unexpectedly!
The chrysanthemums that we bought 4 years ago are now flowering well in their planter, after a couple of off years.

Both are nice surprises.

My 50 (53, actually!) "Electric" red onion sets are in.
And the lettuce seem to be doing well in the greenhouse. 😃

Had a rummage in the raised bed: a handful of carrots and an unripe butternut squash!

Clearing one of the raised beds prior to sowing "root chervil" seeds. Never grown these before, didn't even know there was such a thing until I saw them in a catalogue, but thought they'd be worth a try. They have to be sown now, but won't germinate until spring, but need to go through a period of cold. (Let's hope we get a period of cold...)

I still haven't sown the broad beans or the winter lettuce - highlighting those jobs on my todo list
So many leaves to sweep up (not "mine" they blow in from the trees around the village green) I don't seem to have gardening time to do anything more

Wow those cabbage white caterpillars are still active - checked on the turnips earlier and they were covered in them and absolutely decimated! Glad I didn't take all the netting off my cabbages yet...

Oh no, I have baby brassicas unprotected at the allotment! They looked OK a week after planting but I've left them alone for over a week now. Will just have to hope they're still OK next weekend.

My (baby) kale look to be OK.

My red cabbage is mostly recovered from the ravaging they got in summer from the CWs.

Got something to say?
