drought, poor harvests, courgette and runner bean stars, maize thriving, loving summer school

















The drought continues. Only some fine misty rain early Thursday but it came to nothing.

The shallot, onion and spud harvests will be poor this year. The rows of beetroot and carrots are meagre; parsnips better. Our allotment stars are courgettes and runner beans. It's often difficult to make time to get up there and water at the moment.

The maize along Calcroft Lane looks at home in these conditions!

Loving working with the summer school group.
