Allotment update

I had a good weeding session this morning - something I really should do more often. I brought back a few beetroot, including a random white one:

So far this year I've also harvested potatoes (1st and 2nd earlies), broad beans, french & runner beans (just starting), peas (grubby), courgettes, carrots, onions, garlic, shallots, soft fruit and herbs.

My peas always have grubs in. I think they're pea/bean weevils. I'm going to scrap them and try mange-tout next year (I really don't mind eating grubs as long as I can't see them!).


  1. Sure it's not the pea moth caterpillar ? Pea weevils also attack onions apparently

  2. I don't know what a pea moth is, but there are little weevil-like creatures crawling around in the soil and undergrowth...
