Didn’t get down at all at the weekend due to horrendous rain. But made it down for the whole of the bank holiday Monday. Collected another couple of pounds of raspberries, some salad leaves, courgettes, dug some potatoes. One of our neighbours also let me have a few apples.

I also weeded, dug over and raked a lot of the now empty beds, and mowed some lawn.

Hoping to get down tomorrow, for an hour in the morning, to pot out the strawberry runners, and sow some more rocket and radishes.

Today I picked 33lb/15kg of potatoes, I reckon that is about just under half, so back tomorrow to get the rest.

It also included this contender for odd veg of the week.

At the weekend I lifted 19lb/9kg of onions (although that is with stalks), a pound or so of raspberries, several very large courgettes, and a few normal sized ones too.

We also picked 7kg/15lb of apples from local trees.

Sitting in the shed

At the allotment, I've picked the onions and some courgettes. Done some weeding. Now hiding in shed from rain, having a cup of tea.
