Tuesday 17th August 2010

Got back from holiday today and after lunch and a bit of a nap I went down to say “hello” to the allotment. Oh my, everything has grown so much. Thank you very much to my sister Michelle for looking after my allotment and garden. I picked enough to keep us going until Saturday. One carrot had an extra stump to it, the kohl rabi are all ready but I only picked a few. Runner beans have gone mad, I picked loads but some were too far gone, so I left them on the plant for seeds for next year. French beans, onions and the broccoli which is brilliant. I picked 4 heads we’ll have some for dinner on Wednesday. Had a good look at the tomatoes there were a few ready and best of all no sign of blight thank goodness. The fennel has all gone to seed, but never mind I picked 1 the rest I’ll pick at the weekend. The garden was tidy when I left, and has now gone mad. The greenhouse looks like a jungle. I’ll get in there this week some time and sort it out.

    What a treat to come home to a jungle and not a desert. Your sister did good.
