We’re off to Scotland tomorrow (hooray) and Al is going to keep an eye on things down on the plot while we’re away (phew). Mainly picking and relaxing I hope as Mother Nature will take care of the watering. Heavy rain is forecast for much of the week and we spent yesterday hastily re-arranging our camping plans. So it’s destination Glasgow and then Argyll with bikes, walking boots and plenty of books.
I had lots of jobs to finish at the allotment today and managed to lift all the onions and carrots, plant and net the primo cabbages and kale given to me by Dave and feed the tomatoes and runner beans. George came to check on his spuds and dug up some of our first earlies; Nicola salad potatoes. It’s a shame we’re not around to eat them but today’s harvest has made handy thank yous to our trusted custodians (Jason, Lei and Bohan are coming to the house to love and feed the cats). I have a huge backlog of photos of plants, dinners and lovely allotment folk to upload but for now here’s a small snapshot from today as I bid you farewell for a week.
may the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall softly on your fields
