Me rambling about my Lottie

  1. When will the rain come?

    Still getting beans but leaving them for seed

    We ate our first early spuds Pentland Javelin along with fresh peas and drumhead cabbage the other ...

    Plot is nearly full

    All toms planted along with sweetcorn, beans(various) squash.

    Only have the pumpkins and courgettes to go in along with some more peas and beans.

    Think we may have some first earlies ready soon as they are about to flower. Looking forward to a bumper raspberry crop too.

    The grape vines have baby grapes and putting on masses of growth.

    Weeds just keep on coming and keeping on top of the watering will ...
