Keep up the good work GG,  this time next year you can look back and pat yourself on the back, as I am sure it will look amazing.

Had a lovely afternoon at the plot yesterday, the sun came out and it was quite hot. Got some more beetroots and turnips seeds in between the rows of sweetcorn .Dug up half my garlic as they were ready and I need the space. Potatoes are just starting to come into flower now. 

tempted to leave a plate, some cutlery in my shed so I can have a salad there for lunch

. Made a nice veg soup for supper with home grown stuff yum

Lucky you GG, I'm at work today, and the dog I am dog sitting is being collected at 6pm, I will get there tonight for a little while. I long for a full day spent on my plot!

Would love my own chooks but not enough space. I feed next doors chickens all my veg scraps, and slugs and snails. They start chatting when they see me come!

Blimey Fruitcake, you are lucky, my broad beans are flowering but no beans yet. Strawberries are just starting to happen and I'm in the south with a very  sunny site! Radishes have been fantastic so far and the turnips are coming through nicely. Had to harvest a few onions as they were starting to go to seed, not sure if my garlic has come to much, they are going over now but they are a bit on the small side

Didnt get to the plot last night as I am dog sitting (that means taking 3 for a walk!!) so spent the evening in the garden instead. Started to rain today so at least I wont have to worry about watering later. Have a good day everyone

Looking good Bizzie, I'm stuck at work till 4pm so cant enjoy this lovely sunny weather. 

The big pile of wood chippings have diminished, managed to get enough to top up my paths. I had one of my cabbages last night for dinner,wow cant beat fresh produce, I dont normally eat the stuff!!! It was good enough for coleslaw too. Picked spinach and yet more radishes

Only did a flying visit last night, had to squeeze in clipping my dogs and watching Chelsea G S on TV.

I had emailed tree surgeons again for more wood chip, as Chinese people wanted some and my new friend Jo, who's plot is next door but one. They had dumped another load off for us, so took a barrow load for my paths, its amazing how quick it breaks down.  If I get time over the weekend, I will do the paths properly and put down some barrier cloth.
