Can’t think of any veggie jokes, if you can, lettuce know 🙄 #lettuce #ontheallotment

Common blue butterfly on the allotments, I’m still spotting and counting them for the #bigbutterflycount but I’d be doing so regardless, can’t help watching these beautiful insects! #butterflycount #butterflyconservation #pollinators #ontheallotment #britishbutterflies #butterflyfood #

Yellow blossom on the village allotments.

There are quite a few plants growing on the farm that we don't use in our products. On the whole, we employ a live-and-let-live philosophy.

One such example is dock. It grows quite extensively in the wild places. Many people would consider it a weed, but every plant has its uses. After all, a weed is simply a plant in the "wrong" place (somewhere you don't want it)

Dock's use is to soothe nettle stings... something we have quite a lot of during nettle-harvesting times!

Four friends, including our very own account manager Fay, are taking on this overgrown allotment 😱😅 Follow their journey over on @plot_80!

If my visit to RHS Tatton Flower Show at the weekend is anything to go by, this is the plant of the year for 2018 - it was everywhere! And in a variety of white, yellow, and pink colours.

It is said that when you have a nose bleed, inserting a yarrow leaf into your nostril will staunch the blood flow... I've not tried it myself, so welcome any stories of success or otherwise with this one.

The last of the red poppies are putting on a good show, even if they are few in number. What they lack in quantity, they certainly make up in colour.

When they're all finished we'll be collecting the seeds and adding them to our Gardener's Hand Soap.

The perils of blackberry picking, not so much for me but for any unsuspecting insect happening to tread on these juicy beads of summer, a white crab spider lies in wait! Down on the allotment today. *
