The allotment is still needing the rain, though we did have some yesterday. Apparently, we should be getting rain all day tomorrow (hurrah!) so that will be wonderful if it happens. Nonetheless, the autumn raspberries are looking the saddest and driest I’ve ever seen them, so I hope they can hang on until tomorrow …
Anyway, in better news, the French climbing beans have even more crops than last week – it’s strange how they look so sparse, with hardly any leaves to speak of, and yet we keep getting those lovely beans from them.
Speaking of plants drying up, the sweet peas are nearing the end, but are still producing some flowers which is great.
The dahlias and gladioli are still going strong.
And the sunflowers are getting taller!
Here is this week’s harvest – which doesn’t include another white courgette, as I put it in the trug just as we were leaving:
And here are the flowers at home:
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
