Allotment Update

Just thought i would give an update on how the allotment is going on. In this part of the world (North East England ) the last few weeks have seen rain most days, wind and sunshine . The plus is that i havent had to do much watering to the vegetables in the ground. I have still been up every day to ‘look after ‘ the plants in the polytunnel mainly tomatoes with a few courgettes and peppers.

Quite a few fruits on there now, still green and hidden away. 
Also outside we have potatoes, cabbages, cauliflower, onions , peas,sprouts and have created a Bee friendly area this year.

Having said that the comfry i have is covered with Bees. I am wanting to take the second cutting off this but will leave it while the flowers are still there.
