It rained all day Friday so I wasn’t surprised to see that some of the plots are waterlogged again when I took a Sunday stroll round the allotment site.
There are always crows and magpies around but I don’t recollect having seen a jackdaw before as I did this morning. I also spotted this small tortoiseshell butterfly.
Looking round the plot I was pleased to see that the broad bean seeds that I sowed nearly four weeks ago, and mentioned last week, have finally appeared.
Thankfully the forecast for the coming week is looking mostly dry, although cloudy, so I will be doing plenty of hoeing and weeding.
I will also sow another row of broad bean seeds, along with some beetroot and carrots.
Have a good week!
