First visit after a week away!!

Overview of allotmentOverview of allotment..not looking bad!!

Well as you all know I went away for a week and had to leave my allotment alone ..(although I did have a neigbour go and pick the runner beans as I didn't want them to get too big!!) Anyway I arrived home to discover that there had been A LOT of rain and was really quite dreading a visit to the allotment wondering how many weeds would have come through. Well in a lull in the rain off I trotted to the allotment and was pleasantly surprised....the water butts are again half full which was good...the ground is very wet which is great for the plants but made my boots kind of heavy...surprisingly I was not totally over run with weeds. Sure there are plenty coming through but it shouldn't take too long to sort out as none of them are very well established.

It was great to be able to harvest some veg. for sunday dinner...i managed to get some carrots, a nice size cabbage and cauliflower and of course some runner beans. I still had some potatoes over from what I had dug previously so haven't dug any more yet. A totally organic Sunday dinner which didn't cost a penny..(well unless you go inot the cost of the seeds...the time it took to plant and sow...the price of tools....) ok...free on the day if we are going to be picky about it!!
