And then the rain came down

Had some really soggy days over the last week - which is a blessing. No more endless watering. Need to post some new picks cos everything is getting nice and green.

Let's do the rain dance

This is getting silly - no rain for ages - oh well it's not as bad as last year (finger's crossed). Have picked my first crop - a nice batch of Pak Choi - see photo.

Ahh - 5 days off - let's party!

Very good time to have some days off I feel - got planting and now weeding to do. So - i'm down the plot tomorrow - prob about 7 a.m. As for the growing - that's is going on a pace - have got to get my tomatoes in their new home, and have lots of plants to get into the ground - but will I have space? We'll see!! Oh - and can I have some rain? Touch wood - not like last year's complete wash-out though thanks!

Getting that warm feeling

It seems I am spending lots of time down at the allotment these days - you can catch me there before 8 a.m. doing some well needed watering and last thing at night (for the same reason). That's the problem with fine weather - no rain. But can't complain as this warm weather is excellent for the growing.
Most (if not all) of my plants are growing well and will be good for cropping in about 1 month - can't believe I have squashes in this early. Touch wood - no return to cold weather!

May day May day!

Sorry - bad - but at least I didn't write - May the 4th be with you (ha! I still might!)
Anyways - I have not written much for a while - guess it's that bit in the year when you wait and see.

Shed update
I have changed the arrangement a bit - moved the door - will post some photos asap. Am off to Birmingham tomorrow to help a mate with his allotment - international allotment man of mystery am I!

24hr Weather report - chances are that temps will hit 20℃ this weekend
