The Pumpkin (one of two) is doing well at the edge of the potato plot
The Peas are fattening nicely - and "yes" I did pick one and eat it all to myself!
It was heavenly - so sweet and lush and more, I want more!
Heres another picture of the Cerise - you can just see some little ones in the background begining to ripen too - how exciting!
These are the pea plants that I put in last weekend - all doing well & as you can see Derek has been digging for me again - bless his little cotton socks!
Ah - my runner beans - they are finally coming along quite nicely - I will have a batch of beans weeks after everyone elses have finished I think
And last but not least is the Tomato that has grown an arm - it is bigger than a tennis ball now & I can't wait for it to ripen so I can slice it up, drizzle it with a very good extra virgin olive all, add a little freshly crushed sea salt and some fresh basil leaves. Mmmmm. Yummy.
Another reason for my recent lack of postings apart from the weather, is that I have been asked to set up a blog for our Allotments! What an honour. I have dived whole heartly into the task and it's nearly there! Once it is published, which should be in the next day or two (just awaiting approval from the Committee) you can view it here - SRAGS (Stanley Road Allotment Garden Society) I am just grateful that we aren't located in Stanley Lane, otherwise it would have been called SLAGS !! haha.
Till next time, I hope you have enjoyed the latest posting.
Toodle pip for now everyone.
