Kids Cress

The children have harvested their cress. They planted it in the shape of their initials 'M' for Mary and 'S' for Sam. They get a lot more out of the allotment when they can start picking and eating things. Sam had been picking at the sorrel and Mary made a salad out of the lettuce and chives. The broad bean tips didn't go into the salad because there were too many icky bugs feasting on them. Things are starting to look good but I'm not sure what to do with my asparagus now. The birds seem to have stripped most of it down. As you aren't meant to pick it for a couple of years I don't know if it will come back again next year now or if I should just start again.
