So it’s been a strange allotment year - weather wise.
Wet, dry, windy, cold, wet, windy, sunny, wet, windy… just a day!
I took my carefully nurtured young plants to the allotment and they all died.
I sowed more seed at home again before planting them out at the allotment again.
I replanted more beans in a different spot on the allotment - they also died.. so I grew even more and these finally took off, a bit late but they're delicious..
The strawberries looked fantastic but then the rain got to them and they rotted.
Those that didn’t were eaten by slugs and snails before the wood lice got them.
The birds loved the red currants and the raspberries weren’t as good as last year - but on the plus side I won’t have to make more jam this year! Yeah!
Blight got most of the tomatoes and the ones that escaped are still green so it looks like there will be some green tomato chutney.
So all in all a funny old growing year so far but there's still lots to do and of course I can start to plan for next year!
