This afternoon we went to the allotment to finish digging over a bed, plant a couple of fruit bushes and water.  We enjoyed a nice cup of tea, made in our Kelly Kettle, and ate brownies.  It is so peaceful at the allotment, yet still a nice buzz with people tending their plants and harvesting their crops.

We don’t have much to harvest on ours, just a few months ago it was an overgrown wilderness of weeds, the result of neglect due to us planning our wedding.  Thankfully, we have started to get back on top of it.

The photo on the left was taken on 10th June, the photo on the right today, 31st July…

Some of my sweetcorn plants, with newly laid bark chipping path, just haven’t finished weeding yet…

And newly planted red kale…

Two blackcurrant bushes and a red gooseberry…

The pumpkin and squash patch has gone wild, there are loads of these long trailing tendrils everywhere…

And the potato plants are sky high…

I also wandered around the allotments taking some photos of different plots, which I’ll share later in the week.
