Allotment Diary 2011 Me: 56.5 hrs He: 52.5hrs

It's been so hot this past week - really really jungle weather that I have been wilting indoors and going stir crazy.

Today we got an early start up the allotment - and what a difference a week makes !
We have had some thundery showers some nights and the grass has grown and these experimental spuds have too

The pumpking on the compost bin is finally taking off

The courgettes have taken.  Despite a heavy shower when we first got there, the ground dried out really quickly

My primary project was to just pick the broad beans today - and Mr Lottie to have a bonfire

A Comfrey plant has sprung up amongst the broad beans - so too more weeds

Oh now - look at the weeds and long grass - this needs doing too.

It's not going to be the quick visit that I planned.

Pumpkin and courgettes have taken - but oh my the weeds

I'll just have to do the most urgent tasks first.        
So it was mowing the lawns

And all the paths

Of which there are a lot on my 250ft plot!  

Mr Lottie played bonfires and I spent two hours mowing - passing  my brassica patch en route!  Brussel sprouts on the right, broccoli in the middle, cauliflowers on the left.

Blogger is playing up so I will try a new post and see if that be continued.


  1. Looks like you have been really busy based on both of your posts.

    Hope the broad beans tasted good.

    You will need to start a new compost heap now.

    Have a great day!

  2. This all looks fab - you've been working hard! Love 'n' hugs, Mel xx
