Hi All, Zoomer, my broccoli was in the same area I seem to get flea beetle so it could be linked, although they were very tall when I put them in.
Gooseberries still too bitter to harvest, but there's a lot on the bushes. My grapevine, I thought had given up the ghost has burst into life! Broad beans are looking awful, they are smothered in blackfly and are going a rusty colour. I might give them another week or two and harvest what there is and pull the lot up Plot is looking very abundant though and more like a kitchen garden than an allotment! Buzzy, the joy of having your own ground is you can do what you like, you can break up the area with lots of paths if you want.
Met the guy next door who I share the shed with and told him I would paint both of them, he was very shy before but this broke the ice and we had a nice long chat. Good to make new friends.
