Allotment Diary–Monday 27 June 2016

I’ve mostly been weeding today although I did crop a couple of bags of mixed veg for my smoothies and Pete gave me a cucumber.  I also started as I mean to go on and spent a few minutes strimming the green drive.

I decided to take the opportunity to take some photo’s though as Debbie asked yesterday and I’ve not taken any recently. It’s nice to have a record of the whole plot as it has been this year, before I change things around a bit later in the year.

First is a panorama of the whole site.

and finally, the flower garden, where I’ve just planted about 20 red tulips that we got free from the town council
