Hello everybody , very busy weekend with garden/allotment 

We have lifted the shallots and they are drying in rebuild plastic g/h at home 

I dug up a row of potatoes and they are looking good , variety is Colleen 

We picked 2 buckets of gooseberrys which are now in freezer , ready for jam went weather cools 

Zoomer that a plot like that on our site - must be mad - the plot opposite the road from us is now been taken as it was bagly over grown . No idea on your wild life 

Had 3 little toms over weekend !
