An inner city allotment

July (Where has the sun gone?)

There is nothing more enjoyable than getting to the allotment very early, before anyone else is there, and after a good downpour! Everything seems to be blooming, growing, in fact our little plot goes a bit wild now, and that’s how we like it!

The spud bags are being emptied and everyone keeps asking for some … We’ve jammed strawbs and redcurrants and if the sun decides to poke its head out again we may have more. The courgette glut is being dealt with in the form of soups and chutney (doesn’t everyone??)

The Green House! The green house now resembles something from Jumanji. The cucamelons have gone wild. I keep nipping out the growing tip just to stop them bursting through the glass. The cucumbers have been a success this year also. Usually, it’s a struggle but, everything seems to be fruiting.

And as for workspace, there is very little, but that’s great. We hope everyone else is havesting as much as we are, and struggling for space. That’s what we grow for isn’t it?

I used to have space on here.  We eat our lunch here, hence the plates!
