sunny allotment days
Currently growing at our allotment (unless they've been eaten by slugs/deer/pigeons/rabbits since we left today):
Peas ( a lot - can you overdose on peas in a pod? We'll hopefully find out soon)
French beans (my faves)
Broad beans (no black fly yet)
Runner beans (from John, every year, they are a hundred years old these beans)
Carrots (in three places, surely the rabbits aren't clever enough to find them all?)
Radishes (I always plant hundreds at once and most of them get too chewy - I've done it again this year)
Gooseberries (these are getting eaten by small humans already - yuck and leave them alone, I want big ones)
and then there are the cucurbit family, fighting their way out of our bay window and soon to be planted if the weather stays good...
...today we also saw several frogs, a steam train and five hot air balloons, so all hobbies were catered for in full.
