Sunny Sunday

So pleased with this patch, there is so much crammed in and its all growing well. 

Beetroot, Peas, Carrots, Kale, Climbing Beans, Spinach, Squashes & Leeks.
The Sweetcorn & Dwarf French Beans we planted out a few weeks ago are doing well too, all the sun & rain has helped a lot. 

The Lavender border boxes are so full and the Bees love the tiny flowers. 
This patch is crammed too, two types of Onion, red & white, Parsnips, Broad Beans, Shallots, Courgettes & Runner Beans.

Sadly the Romanescu Cauli's have bolted, so feeding them to our Hens, they love it! More on them, later. 
So pleased with the Potato patch, these are the main crop Cara (to the rear) & Kerrs Pink in the 3 rows at front. Some of the Cara are in flower so will be digging up soon. 

But I put in the Kerrs Pink in for a late crop.
Lovely Cox's Orange Pippin apples. 

This tree has loads coming, can't wait to try them, an autumn treat :)
Today's Harvest:

Loganberries, Blackcurrants, Raspberries, Blueberries, Strawberries, Gooseberries, Peas, Broad Beans, a few spuds, garlic & Sweetpeas too.
Well as my title suggests the sun did come out, a few dark clouds, but no rain that was forecast earlier in the week. 

Next Sunday is our sites annual Open Day, so we've been busy tidying up our plot for the visitors. It's sure to be a good day, weather permitting. 

Talking of the Open Day, all the plot holders have been asked to supply a Scarecrow, this is my effort, the sign around his neck say's 'Still tackling these darn weeds!' 
I've also put a temporary hen house in the fruit cage for our Hens too, the visitors love seeing them, so as they will be there most of the day, they need a place to lay their eggs. 

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian
