Joe and Hannah came along to the allotment to help me pick beans and pumpkins today. The spirit was willing but there’s only so much a 16″ vinyl kid can lift and pull. There are so many berries to pick we don’t know where to start…We picked sloes too but the kids are too young to understand what we do with them.
They were keen to see how big the pumpkin was….and what colour it was….would it be orange enough ? 🙂Yes it would !! They took their mini pumpkins along for comparison. The little ones are for their Halloween party. Now, if it’s ready to pick, how will we move it ?Well I can lift the little ones…I don’t think I can lift this by myself………Mum ?Ok, now what do I do ?Hannah ….?How do we do this ?Puuuullll!!
The beans were a lot easier. Again it just needed a little cooperation..I can pick them if you can catch themOk, that’s filled the basket so that’s enough for today.Let’s check the tomatoes……yikes…what’s happened?They all got blight…every single one had to be pulled up and burned…..the kids didn’t have to pick them, Mum did it this time. No chutney this year. This was a few years ago…
So we had another bonfire 🙂
