I've just been for a quick look round the allotment in the rain as I've not been there since Monday. Not surprisingly it's all looking rather bedraggled but lush.
The broad beans, onions and potatoes are all doing well. There's lots of new growth on the blackberry, raspberries and strawberries, which even have flowers on them.
The comfrey has grown noticeably in the past week, as has the rhubarb which I shall start picking next time I'm there.
The perennial cornflowers have lots of buds on them, and the aquilegias and lupins are looking good. The roses are now very leafy again.
The carrot seeds in the pots have appeared and flower seedlings are appearing everywhere, as are the weeds needless to say.
All we need now is a change in the weather to dry and sunny. Happy gardening!
