And just like that, after a week of rain, summer finally seems to have arrived, or at least some sun and warmer temperatures anyway.
its amazing how the allotment springs into life with new bands of weather. The heavy rain we saw set the weeds aglow, but the heat and sun has seen the actual plants put on new growth and stature.
Down at the allotment, the pre-covid waiting list for plots is being worked through, with new members taking over some of our spare plots. Beyond that, there is a significant wait with many people signing up during lockdown. As always, we aim to get through plots as quickly as possible, but this can take some time, dependent upon when people give up their plots.
in the meantime, happy growing!
