A mild, sunny and windless day at the allotment
Today we started on the new raised beds, marking out the beds and paths; putting the boards and stakes into position as well as doing a thorough weeding of the whole area.
The runner beans are now over so they were taken out and added to the compost bin. The apples on the Adam Pearmain tree are still ripening and another batch were ready to be picked today.
The Japanese vegetable Gobo is grown in tubes in a tub to make it easy to remove and the results speak for themselves!
