Thanks for asking


My potato in a pot has made a stuttering recovery. The offending leaves have been plucked. Bordeaux mixture has been sprayed. New leaves have appeared. But, no flowers.

I’m dying to know what’s going on under the soil.

Up at the allotment:


First earlies still not flowering and have taken a battering in the wind. It might be time for a test lift.


Maincrop potatoes faring well.


They’ve got flowers.


Poor wee runner beans also took a beating in the wind.


My weeding has helped the onions and garlic come along. Like the Forth Bridge, the weeding never stops.

And back to the kitchen with salad leaves from the raised bed.
