One of the good days

Good weather days are precious when they arrive and so on our last visit to the plot I took lots of photos and have created a tour of the plot. (If you want to view larger photos with a few extras too then you could view the album on my website here).

The grass had been newly cut and the beds were planted up. Some areas still need a bit of attention but on the whole this was a good day.

Sadly the good spell of weather was short lived so what will greet us on our next visit - your guess is as good as mine!


Just a little question now:
A while ago I removed the need to use the irritating Captcha tool that Blogger had implemented and for a while no spam - other than what Blogger quarantined - came through, but recently I seem to be getting comments obviously designed to place links to various websites that have absolutely no connection to my blog postings.

These come to me for moderation and I can delete them before they are published so that isn't a problem - but what I want to know is whether anyone who subscribes to follow-up comments on my blog has been receiving these spammy comments. I'm hoping not as my set up should prevent this happening. Could you let me know if you are receiving spam comments from my blog so I can deal with it if this is the case!

  1. Wow, you have been very busy. Everything is looking tidy and lush. Wish this wind would die down, it's playing havoc with the taller plants!

    1. It's the rain not the wind that is spoiling things here Debbie

  2. The plot looks good Sue. Boy, you have been having a time with the weather. We are going through some extreme heat right now. I'll be heading to the plots shortly to see how everything is doing.

    Keep up the good work!

    1. We have indeed Robin certainly no extreme heat for us as our Central heating has sprung back into life.

  3. It's looking great and filling up nicely. It doesn't look like the wet weather has set you back at all.

    1. Things are planted Jo but just not growing away as they should. If it warmed up a bit the plants would love the conditions.

  4. Looking very nice, Sue. All smartened-up as if ready for inspection by the CO!
    Having just the odd good day amongst many bad ones certainly gets you to think carefully about prioritising tasks, doesn't it? I really do want to harvest something now!

  5. I enjoyed your photo slide show. I'm always amazed you have so much going on in your garden plot(s)! One day I read on our website the history of your allotment space and it was really interesting. What a fab job you've done!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it Kelli and that it maybe gave you something to look at whilst sheltering indoors!

    1. Thanks Lorraine but I wonder what it looks like now after two days of almost solid rain!

  8. What an incredible garden you have Sue and Martin..so huge and so productive. I would imagine you hate to go back home when you spend your time there.

    1. It isn't being very productive at the moment Bren. The rain here is battering down and all I can think of is mouldy strawberries.

      We do enjoy being on the plot but we love being in the garden at home too!

  9. It is good to see all your hardwork paying off - it is a big site to keep under control but with all the variety of plants you certainly put it to good use.

  11. I have just finished looking at your photographs on Picasa, what can I say, exceptional!! The birds nest in the Rhubarb is outstanding.

    1. Thanks Rooko. It was a pity that the blackbird abandoned the nest.

    2. Yes nature can be cruel (or perhaps the Blackbird went off looking for some Birds Custard to go with the Rhubarb)Sorry for being flippant, naff joke.

    3. Sometimes you have to be flippant Rooko. I suppose we were lucky that it didn't try to make egg custard!

  12. Wow everything looks great....so much more tidy than mine. How many plots do you have...it seems like an awful lot of land!!

    In comparison I only have a small portion to keep on top of.

    As for the comment situation....I have to come back to see if you have replied to my comments so there aren't any issues for me.

    1. The plot amounts to about a third of an acre Tanya
