Another nice evening in June and another ad hoc trip to the allotment. It was a surprise to discover the beans I had just! planted were already poking through the soil .. and I had hardly dropped them in just under the top soil, I had really poked them into the ground. They had shot up.
The conditions for growing are just perfect at the moment: the ground is really warm and we have had a couple of days of good rain — as if by magic, everything is growing quickly again!
It will be a busy week again and so I will probably not be able to make it down to the allotment for the rest of this week. Last weekend I was too busy with prior commitments to be able to visit the plot, although hopefully I will be able to finish off the remaining area this weekend.
