See I knew there was a reason why I picked the allotment under the trees - I may get the shade but I don't get this!

The poor owner of no. 28

The rain finally stopped today so I took the opportunity to finished edging some of the paths and use some of the freebie donkey manure to mulch the raspberries, blackcurrants and the beds where I will be growing this years broad beans. Lets hope donkeys and horses don't vary too much otherwise I may be getting suspect crops.

 The order to HSL has been posted today so next year I will be trying the following
Broad Bean - Cretian
Dwarf French Bean - Scotts
Runner Bean - Brooker Bean
Melon - Green Nutmeg
Lettuce - Stoke
Climbing Bean - San Antonio

Things still to do ( it never ends ) -
Finish off paths, build better supports for the raspberries started
