Amazing how things have come on , a bit of sun and rain 

dug up some potatoes , picked broad beans , broccoli , peas , strawberries gone mad , OH going to make strawberry jam at weekend , raspberries about ready 

Pumpkins and squash don't look to good , not really grown , don't known why ?

The best crop is the number of weeds !! 

Got some coffee grounds so put them in the compost bin 

looks like next few weeks it is the garden and allottment , need to tidy up before next holiday
