This is a photograph taken by my eldest daughter Emma at the end of an hour on the allotment.
Emma suggested that I pick her up from work as she was on an early shift at the hospital and that we hit Avalon (plots 1 &1A) from 4 - 5 in the late afternoon.
After making sure my wife was comfortable and going to be able to be left to watch even more coverage of the queen's funeral, I picked my daughter up, we found her car and then both drove to Avalon
I have been notified by idverde that finally the new combination padlocks have been fitted.
Harvested a load of Runner beans and it looks like another batch will be ready in a few days. Bolted Brassicas to be chopped back and fed to the dalek on a future visit. Potatoes in Buckets covered with secondary glazing panels at keep contents dry ready for harvesting.
Suttons Flame (Red Seedless) Grapevine has been making steady slow progress during the heat wave, however after a week of rain it had put on a real spurt of growth.
When filling the dalek with the kitchen scraps that I took down with me there were many worms under the lip of the lid.
