Allotment Update Aug 15

Another update on how things are progressing in the allotment here in north east england. The weather over the last few weeks has been a real mixed bag, gale force winds, torrential rain , sunshine, cloudy , showers (at least no golf ball size hailstones for a few weeks !)

Its a case of taking any opportunity to get to the plot and do whatever is needed. As well as the usual de-weeding there is still quite a bit produce in the polytunnel. While the weather conditions have meant less watering outside , inside still needs tending to. 

Managing to get produce from the plot now – so makes it all worth while.
