Past two weeks

There’s plenty to do and extra helpers as it’s the school holidays.

There are a few problems with eg runner and climbing bean plants not growing but overall, as can be seen, crops are producing well.

Hot.

Although the temperatures were hot much was achieved, including harvesting the first lot of garlic while the take-home boxes contained a range of goodies.

 

A week later

It’s good to see the leeks and climbing beans free of weeds, with flowers on the beans.

Red currants have ripened , plus some raspberries

added to take-home produce – broad beans, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, potatoes and strawberries.

A fine Spring day in the school holidays

We had a lot of people out today, including several children (and grandchildren) because it is a school holiday and also one dog.

We all enjoyed the warm sunshine, and got a lot of work done. We had some yummy cake and brownies with our coffee.

You can see how well the new crops are coming along in the beds and the polytunnels, so we had a nice Spring harvest.
