Another glorious morning on my allotment this morning. Today is even hotter than yesterday, and I took the plunge today and wore my shorts. Yes I know, shock horror! My long gangly white legs were out for everyone to see. No one fainted at the sight of them, so that was good. On my plot this morning, I dug over a rather large bed where last year I grew some Sarpo Mira potatoes. Now you may remember the size of some of them? Most of them were normal sized but some were huge! I found several that were large, so have no idea how I managed to miss them when I dug the rest of them up last year. I’ve got enough to do mashed potato for all 4 of us for dinner, and the kids eat a lot of mashed potato. I love little surprises, don’t you?
I also weeded some of the tyres that I’m growing Strawberries in, and filled the gaps with plants that have started to grow outside the allocated Strawberry bed. Flowers have started to appear on my Strawberry plants already, which is a little earlier than I would anticipate. Hopefully I’ll have a wonderful crop this year and will make loads of jam!! I managed to dig over one bed and half of the next bed, so that was a good mornings work. I’m hoping to get down tomorrow afternoon again. The weather is supposed to stay fine and dry, so I’m going to make the most of it while it’s still here.
