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!|
