here is...

...our first portion of beans and you can just seen the thinned out radishes we added to our salad.

We are pleased with beans because they had been transplanted from the original allotment and we were not sure that they would grow.

As you can see there are more on the way and they are growing rapidly.

This is the frame work for the new compost heap it is going to live at the side of the shed out of the way but easily accessible.
In front of the shed are some old raspberry canes and one lonely raspberry

Biddle is still under the impression that visits to the allotment must include coffee and biscuits

and it is an incentive to complete the weeding and hedge cutting

Not much creativity this week although I have cut out a sprite doll to make. The sewing machine will be packed away for her annual holiday sometime over the weekend. It is the gadding about time, a day out here a day out there interspersed with visits to the allotment. Let's hope the weather is kind, not that we have anything to complain about compared with other parts of the world!
Thanks if you popped by

The raspberry looks beautiful. And I like the way Biddle thinks.

Those beans look lovely. There's nothing better than fresh produce is there.

I do like Biddle's way of thinking!

Biddle is taking things far too lightly. Think he needs a smaller spade. x x x
