I’ve not updated for a while but in this hot weather we’ve mainly just been watering, watering some more and watering again. Everything seems to be growing nicely and enjoying the sun.
Lottie’s picked her first flowers which she gave to her Aunty for her birthday. There is now loads more flower buds opening up so she hopes to be able to pick more to give to her teacher next week. Then will spend her summer holidays making bouquets for family and friends.
The sunflowers are opening up too.
And Ryan was made up picking his first carrots, there’s loads more left too.
The first melon is now the size of a tennis ball, so Lottie is excited to pick and eat that when it’s ready. Melon is her favourite food for breakfast.
We’ve had loads of produce, mainly beetroot, courgettes, potatoes, and many different kinds of beans.
It’s the annual family BBQ on the allotment on Sunday, and then next week the kids break up for the summer holidays so we may get some more stuff done other than watering.
