photo special!!

These are from a week ago when i remembered the camera on the way out the door! The good weather has disappeared over the last week now and i'm supposed to be down there now but i'm waiting in for somebody. Not my idea of time well spent.

Anyway, below is the bottom half of the plot, the courgette plant next to the ever growing sunflower is still producing, the dug over area either side is where the strawberries are. The area that has been covered since i got the plot almost 3 years ago is now dug and free!! It actually felt like an accomplishment to have finally done it. The area will probably need green manuring over winter to get some nutrients back into it.

The bean canes are now down and i will weed that area next and dig the bean trench. Next to that is the massivly overgrown beetroots, some are far to big now for use, they will be to woody with no sweetness in them, but they will do good in the trench.
Note plot area dug and cover free!
Long shot of the whole plot, in the foreground is the gooseberry which needs a bit of pruning before next year, and a late producing courgette plant which has just starting fruiting!
Max helping to weed and dig holes.
Strawberry rows either side of the courgette/sunflower monster.
The winter lettuce and pumpkins 'snowman', of which there are three good sized ones.

Some of the carrots, all grown by the kids.
Outdoor cucumbers, quite successful grown up the trellis on the plot.
