An evening trip with Tom to check the state of the wigwams and to do some watering. Since putting the bean poles up it has been super windy and a bit cold which means I was surprised to find them both standing up. Plants in the garden had suffered from wind damage and so I expected to see the same in the newly planted courgette and bean plants on the plot, but again nothing to note. It’s a bit of a different climate up on the hill at the allotment, safe behind the trees from the wind and warm sun all of the day.
Tom did some hoeing and fetched water, I generally pottered about. Broad beans have flowers, so do strawberries. I noticed something had been eating the turnips. The big excitement was finding small gooseberries on the bushes, I had not seen any of these flower so I was surprised to see any fruit.
Wednesday evenings will become our evening visiting time from now on with myself and Tom. Hopefully the evening weather will improve.
