June 5th

A quick visit this morning to plant out some beetroot and salad crops that I had growing in seed trays to protect from any late frosts, everything is growing so fast now .

The recent rains and warm sunshine has helped not only the crops but the weeds as well ! The Strawberries have started to show the pending fruit load (Time to consider getting some yummy Cornish cream soon)

The potatoes have really shot up, this year I had put quite a lot of compost and fertilizer in the troughs lined with old newspapers seems to have had an effect, fingers crossed on what the spuds turn out to be !

The Peas have also started to climb up the cheap netting frame I put in this year.

I also took adv advantage of the early morning to take a load of photos of the rest of the allotment plots down at heath road allotment, to this end I updated the gallery blog -

Why not take a look at all the lovely growing thats going on the rest of the allotments.

Well I think that's all for now, thanks for following by rambling, have a great last day of the long bank holiday weekend !

Having spent a few hours today down at the plot, I worked up a nice hunger for some "chips" . I have only one more section to dig over this year behind the strawberries, leaving everything else ready for planting! Whoop.

Now to head of to the local fish and chip shop !
