Thursday 5th September 2013 – Is it just me, or do all vegetable look like a part of the body?

Another scorcher of a day today, I think it reached about 29 again, if not higher. It’ll all change tomorrow as we’re due for a load of rain this evening, and tomorrow. But we do need it, so I mustn’t really complain. I spent a sweaty two and a half hours on site this morning. Yesterday I seemed to get a heat rash just above my tummy, and it’s flared up again today. It doesn’t look very nice, and itches when it gets hot. But I solider on up the allotment, as it’s my little hobby, and keeps me out of mischief. So this morning I finished off digging over the onion bed. I found another 3 onions, and they’re all now drying nicely in my greenhouse. I’ll leave them to dry for about 2 weeks, and then put them in a netted bag, and use as and when I need them. I then moved onto the 2 strawberry beds I have. The runners are going manic, and I’ve now trained them to grow in the beds rather than on the paths. I weeded the beds, and dug up some rogue potatoes. I found more huge ones, and some diddly squit ones.

This potato was 18cm long, and weighed 1lb 7.8oz!!

Then this afternoon I’ve started to sort out the tomatoes in the greenhouse, and pick them all, and put the ones that aren’t quite ready on trays above the kitchen cupboards to turn. I’ll check them once a week to see how they’re doing. Time for another bath, and I’ll see what tomorrow’s weather brings. If it’s raining I’ll finish off the greenhouse, but if it’s dry I’ll be down the allotment again sorting out the next bed. Take a look at the photos of the huge potato and the one that looks like a body part. I’ll let you decide what you think it looks like, but I’ve made up my mind…..

    All my answers for the spuds are rather crude in nature, so I’ll leave it at that. I’m American, and lived in England as a child, so we both speak english, but , “diddly squit”. You’re making up words
    just to confuse us Colonials.
