Been visiting this weekend, here are some pictures from my folks allotment and garden. Their allotment has suffered with slugs, snails, mice and now rabbit attacks, so they are having to net everything to try and protect crops.
OH will be very envious when he see's their row of beetroots.
Broadbeans, peas, greenbeans are flowering:
They've got a beautiful grapevine, winding it's way through the greenhouse. The vine is laden with fruit:
Huge tomatoes - I've forgotten the varieties, think one was Shirley. Some are orange already:
Huge cucumbers in the greenhouse in their garden, they've already eaten one. I wonder if I would be cropping cucumbers if the mouse hadn't eaten the seedlings:
Chives in flower:
Surely the most magnificent sheds in the whole of the alloment community ? Aptly named 'Southfork', built from pallets:
and one of the most beautifully crafted sheds I've seen on an allotment, it is so much better in reality than it looks in photograph:
