I bet you thought I'd fallen down a rabbit hole never to be seen again! No, indeed not.
And I have been diligently gardening, even if I have not been diligently blogging. Tut tut!
So when you lot last metaphorically joined me at the Hill, you were admiring my newly planted out peas and broad beans, waiting for me to plant out my french and runner beans, and were watching me eat my first delightful spear of asparagus. Yum.
So, during June, I have sneaked a little more asparagus (best not to overcrop); planted out my celeriac, squash and courgettes;
erected the bean frame and planted out all the beans;
planted out the tomatoes in the courtyard garden into their buckets, and watched everything grow like billy-o.
The weather has had a bit of a rush to the head with proper wall-to-wall hot July sunshine which is set to last, and the plot loves it.
It's not just been me gardening - we had a Work Party at the site at the weekend which involved all pitching in to spruce things up ready for the judging of the Best Allotment Site in Birmingham. We hope to defend our crown!
And my fellow plotholders continue to make it a pleasure to be there - long my it (and this glorious Summer) continue!
