Well like I promised I have been and taken a few snapshots for you today.
The morning started off fine and I got a bit of work done but as is typical it poured with rain this afternoon so the shots were taken after tea. It was quite heavy rain and I'm sure it will help the plants along a bit...no more reading just enjoy the pics!!
This is a view from the greenhouse looking up over the root vegetable section. Growth isn't great this year but at least I have got the weeds under control!!
The beans section including broad beans and a selection of french beans. Unfortunately no peas or mange-tout for us this year but the others are now cropping nicely.
Saw this cheeky critter having a feast on one of Kate's cabbage leaves. I didn't think she would be too happy so I removed it from the plant.
Sorry this is a little blurry...not sure what happened to the camera and then the batteries died so I couldn't re-take the shot...there are a couple more like it too. Anyway this is the squash, sweet and babycorn and also the runner beans.
Another blurry one and another squash bed...also the strawberry bed in the background and the raspberry canes to the left going wild this year.
Blurry spuds and brassicas!!
The owners of the allotment next to me have some lovely sweet peas growing up the side of their greenhouse.
And finally the pond/wildlife area. This has really come on and filled out well this year and I love having this little bit of nature at the top end of my allotment
So that's all I have for today....got very wet digging up my spuds and due to the heavy rain I ended up carrying most of the allotment along with me on my boots. Oh well, it's a good workout for the legs!
