I’m running about a month behind on my diary and my notes don’t really kick in until mid-July. This was the day after the wedding and there was just general tidying going on. I almost always see the spitfire when I’m in the plot, but today two went over together.

The ¬†allotment has kicked off properly now, with early summer flowers blooming and the veg beds filling up. I keep cutting back the ridiculously huge lettuce, but it’s intent on flowering and being huge (and not very nice to eat). I harvested the first carrot thinning to see how they’re doing for size. The row looks really good.

The onions are doing pretty well, but one that looked good was actually a bit soft and had gone rotten at the bottom.
