  I recall those cinema days, on this tablet I get caught in a loop when battery is running low - never sure what will come up!!

What a treat to have the fox for company, however fleeting.

  yes, very hot here. I made a supreme effort today and was at the allotment by seven thirty to water the peas! Could feel the heat rising.

Wandered around the garden  and was delighted to see

 netting being replaced

The soil still looks heavy but planted all in well manured soil to give a good start.

Other beds prepared, now to make pigeon-proof frames!

   thank you Gardengirl, logical thinking. I'm keeping a closer eye on the moon phases now I've downloaded the planting calender. Checking on the peas today and will take photos.

Morning everyone   looks to be a hot day so plan A is to go to allotment within the hour to prepare a bed for the rapidly growing fennel, renew the netting over the peas (need a higher cane frame) and make a proper path between the small beds.

Plan B to strim grass and water everything in this evening and remember to take photos

Thanks Gardengirl,  I'm in awe at the speed with which you have transformed your plot. Where do you get your energy from...

I'm remembering all your work with those pallets and the station garden. Your posts leave me in a spin!! 

Although it isn't clear just in front of that narrow lighter strip (peas under cover) is a wide pathway running from the left ( where entrance gate and  first car park is) , then along past my plot to a second car park.                                

Up at each side are wide grass tracks and along at the back by the far trees. Not for cars though as churns up the grass. So I can  drop anything heavy, go on to the second cp or turn back to first cp. Very convenient.

 

I'll take more photos on the next visit, it's good to have a wander around.
