Day after Open Day

 Sunday was our annual Open day when we open our gates to the public, have stalls selling Fruit, Veg, Jam & Cakes, we have a Tombola, Raffle and cook food on site, its a great fund raiser for our society. A local radio station did the music for us as it is our centenary year.
 So I got busy neatening up our plot, cut the grass and pulled up loads of weeds. 
I dug over this patch, removed mainly grass and some persistant weeds! It's now ready for some winter crops, like Kale, Spinach & Onions.
We had lots of visitors, as all plots did, folk loved all the flowers we grow, especially the Poppies & Lavender.
Today, Monday, I returned to finish off some digging & harvested all this, another bumper harvest.
Potatoes, Cauliflower, Courgettes, Kale, Peas, Broad Beans, Blackberries & Sweet Peas too.
I displayed the Canada flag for open day, we have Canadians in our family so was very appropriate.

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
