Everything is really on the move

Some pics today of progress and growth bursting out everywhere.
Sorry, too hot to type captions but the photos are pretty self explanatory I hope.

A nice day at last

Today it was fine, sunny and warm so we took advantage to get on with the planting. As a result, the centre bed is now fully set and the final bed progressed further. As well as the potatoes which are growing at a fantastic pace with beautiful green tops we now have, onions, french beans, borlotti beans, broad beans, peas, beetroot, leeks, carrots, parsnips, chard, cabbage, cauliflower, squash and cucumber. We hope they all go as well as the potatoes have.

It has been hard to get on the allotment for the past week or two, plus working away has not helped. However a little better weather has led to some progress. I am somewhat amazed at the growth shown by the potatoes. I put this down to a combination of very fertile soil following 20 years of wilderness and the sheer amount of rain into the ground....

Today I managed to put in 2 rows of dwarf beans.

Then dig some of the last bed and plant 3 butternut squashes and a row of 2 types of cucumber.

Finally it was on to hands and knees to take out the rapid weed growth in the onion bed.

In case anyone is wondering what the previous post has to do with allotments, I posted it as a thank you for the team who develop it. It's a great app for browsing files on your phone and it's free. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to see the files on their phone.
