End of June on the plot

Typical June week on the plot, more crops planted out in the little space available, more Dwarf French Beans in the raised bed we cleared of weeds and more Peas planted in the new raised bed. 

Plenty of crops harvested too, see below.

The Lavender in the foreground has taken and now in flower, to add the the other Lavender we have, it has attracted lots of honey bees too. 
Watch the video walkabout for more views of the flowers we grow to attract Bees.
Crops harvested this week:
Broad Beans 
And Rhubarb. 
So lots of Jam making & the Rhubarb for Wine too. 
This picture shows Matilda, our only chicken now, sadly Freda fell ill and the only kind thing to do was to put her out of her misery, our local vet did the deed :( 
But Matilda, now just over 3yrs old is fighting fit and we hope to get her some new companions soon, ex-battery hens again from the British Hen Welfare Trust. Watch this space for news of the newcomers.

Thanks for reading/returning and don't forget to watch the video, link below. Ian
