Inspiration time: in our allotment

Rhubarb
Thought I would post some pics I took lately of what we have in our allotment at the moment...   how many dishes in the making can you spot?
There is something really satisfying about growing your own organic fruit and veg and I love to come here to pick and plan my cooking- better than a trip to the supermarket any day! We also have tomatoes, potatoes (including some funky purple ones), runner beans, borlotti beans, climbing French beans and several kinds of courgette/ marrow. There will be Chinese broccoli, beetroot, parsnips, cucumbers, basil, gooseberries, raspberries, more kale, and of course the pumpkins...
Thanks to my husband for his hard work and to Mother Nature  :)
