Blue food and Beetroot a painting a day

These are the best blueberries I have ever grown. The secret is to keep the perishing birds off without netting the birds and perishing them.

A painting!

this painting can be bought from ( apologies for photo on ETSY page there is a glitch):

Beetroot in a bunch

22cm x 15cm, 9″ x 6″

There is very little time in the day when there are so many plants to water and crops to pick, I do not try and grow beetroot as I am the only person besides lovely aunt who really likes it, so these are bought and no less pretty for it.

The allotment has peas and beans in astonishing variety at the moment, diy dad has dug out his early carrots and the maincrop carrots are coming up. I have a forest of flat leaved parsley in the salad bed and the first tomatoes are ripening. The first autumn cyclamen is out as well….excuse me but the proms are only just begun, cyclamen???

    You used fruit as your subject? It kinda reminded me of what we used to do in art class.
