19 July

So... mid July and finally some good weather. I've not watered that much - a good soaking once a week since the water levels dropped. But the sun has been fantastic! Real difference.

Squashes have exploded and are cropping already.

Generally the plot is looking, well, like a plot! Disappointed with the beans which are behind others, but generally cropping squashes and leaves making up for the lack of other staples.

More leaves than we can eat (above). Lots of weeds between rows. But the crop below says it all - mix os squashes, mix of leaves. Really pleased!

Oh yes, and a mix of alliums. Onions, shallots and banana shallots. Definitely want to do more shallots next year - so much flavour. Perhaps also some red onions...
