Today’s task was painting the general allotment shed, and I’m quietly pleased with how it’s turned out:
So pleased, yay! Naturally, even though the weather forecast was fine all weekend, it started raining five minutes after we got home, but to be honest the paint was all but dry when we left the allotment, so am hoping all will be well …
And the lilies are simply amazing and SO strongly scented, double yay!
Plus we have our first sunflower!
And the gladioli continue to look good too:
I’ve also happy to say we have our first small crop of French beans – which are my favourite of the bean/pea family. They’re so sweet-tasting and absolutely no strings which is just brilliant (I hate strings!):
Here is the harvest which this week consists of the sunflower, lilies, gladioli, rudbeckia, carnations, echinacea, sweet peas, plus runner beans, mangetouts, French beans and the rest of the shallots:
Here are all the vases at home:
Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
