Short update on the veg patch and a jigsaw :)

June already ! Less than three weeks to the longest day. That thought is so depressing that it has no place here and we won’t mention it again.

Joe is very proud of this radish. It’s the only thing we’ve harvested so far this year, although we did pick the first two strawberries yesterday and netted them up before the birds spot them !

We managed to plant sweetcorn and squash this week.

Everything we plant has to be protected now from rabbits. Our allotment site must be rabbit paradise, there are so many of them.

Not again !

When Joe escaped from the sweetcorn patch he ran into the polytunnel to show you how tall the tomatoes are now….

…and for Aunty Janet, this is the heritage variety we’re growing this year 🙂

The peas and beans are doing well..

…but so are the weeds, sadly, because we can’t get the strimmer to start.

We need a mechanic !!

This is the tidy view of our veg patch. The bit to the left, out of shot, is a head-high jungle.

I hope we’ll be able to show you a neater plot next time.

Thanks for looking in on us 🙂 x
