Ive already fallen behind on this new challenge !!! ok
A is for ants !
When we started on our allotment we had a ants nest , we dug it up and ran away from the ants a few times ! lol. I wish i had a photo but my son was so taken with the ants who decided to march through our shed one day ! we haven't found any this year and it looks as if they moved on and found a new home !
B is for beetroot !
I used to hate beetroot until i discovered Chocolate beetroot cake !! yummy !
so this year beetroot is on my list to grow !!
C is for carrots
What else ??? Ive sown some mixed colour carrots today in our poly in a bid to beat the carrot fly this year.
The carrot fly (Chamaepsila rosae) is a pest of gardens and farms, and mainly affects the crop of carrots, but can also attack parsnips, parsley and celery
Crop damage is caused by the creamy-yellow larvae (maggots) feeding on the outer layers of the carrot root. In autumn, they may penetrate further into the root. The legless larvae are up to 10 mm in length.
