Allotment geekery

If you follow me on Instagram you will have endured borlotti watch for the last week!  These little beauties have been living on our bathroom windowsill but it was time to repot them and house them in the polytunnel.

Peas!  I'm going to experiment this year, I've started these seeds off in the polytunnel and will harden them off and plant them out in May, but I'm also going to plant directly in the ground at the end of April and see how each gets on.  I definitely didn't plant enough peas last year.

Golden beetroot, an ABSOLUTE favourite of ours last year, cut thinly and put on a homemade pizza (using homemade tomato sauce of course!) was a revelation, so delicious!

Turnips, I have really over planted turnips but I'm too soft to just throw away the little runt seeds so will give them a try, I might be asking for your turnip recipes soon :/

Ahh my broad beans (ignore the weeds) I have never grown these before but I'm happy with how they are turning out.  I can't wait to give broad bean pesto a try (if only my basil would hurry up and grow!)
