Birthday Boy

I'm having a day off from the plot today as it's the birthday. First prize for the cheekiest card goes to my daughter - I've absolutely no idea where she gets her warped sense of humour from.

Ticking over

Nothing much to do on the plot at the moment except deal with a few weeds and harvest the fruits of my labour. Just as it should be for this time of the season. I have turned the compost heap and spread what was usable as a mulch, so it's not as if I've had my feet up all day, just thought I'd make that clear for all you puritans out there.


These are coming along now so I've put up some support:


As the ground's wet after all the recent rain it's a good time to get a mulch on. What compost I've got I've spread around the sprouts and broccoli.


The strawberries are about over so it's time for the raspberries:


These are starting to flower so will soon be ready for picking


I'm picking the earlies now and the maincrop are coming along nicely.
