Crunchy carrots!

Despite having a very absent August I have managed a trip up to grab some produce before the slugs take notice or the courgettes turn into marrows! (Admittedly we have thrown into the compost bin the biggest courgettes you have ever seen! I doubt they would fit in the oven!)

The carrots have been particularly good this year however. I chopped them up to have with hummus. Delicious! I am definitely going to grow more next year.

The funny thing about allotments is that it takes a few years to work out how much of everything you want to grow and even then you cannot guarantee the correct sized crop. I planted 25 sweetcorn plants this year and only 5 came up! However, I planted 12 climbing French bean plants and got waaaay too many. A ridiculous bumper crop - I couldn't get rid of them to neighbours and friends quick enough!

Can't win! :)
