We toiled on, clearing all our plot and planting out onions, french beans, peas, broad beans, tomatoes, leeks, beetroot, carrots,baby sweetcorn,
squash, and pumpkin.
The sky is always dramatic at the Beechwood allotments.
Summer drifts on, and there is much rain and floods across the country but Beechwood thrives and so do most of our crops.
Pea soup says Ellen...Why not, I reply.
Life at Beechwood seems timeless. A kind of woodland therapy exists there.
Here we are. As you will see there is much growing and we now have many new neighbours.
Time for afternoon tea in the green garden.
Much work is undertaken at Beechwood to prepare the soil for the next season. Horse muck and compost are delivered by the lorry load and my time
is spent digging it all in and turning the soil.
The winter crops that we had were brussels and cabbage.
Over the winter period people come and go.
And the next allotment become free. So we took over in April and to the right is a picture of it when we took it on.
Time to start planning for this years crops.
It's that time of year again. One year ending and another starting.
