Just back from another quick holiday. I visited the allotment today to see how its holding up. All was fine so I picked some carrots and beans and went home for lunch.

Turn Compost Bin contentsVisited the allotment this afternoon. My first job was to move compost cage to the right of the heap and then refill by turning the compost back into the wire compost bin, adding some compostables from home. see picture on the right. I then cleared all remaining lettuce which had bolted and added them to the compost bin. Dug some carrots and gave them a wash before taking them home. Finally I pulled up my runner beans adding any small beans, leaves, and stalks to the compost bin. All large swollen pods I placed in the greenhouse on a wire mesh to allow them to dry out, so I will have some seed ready for next year. I then had a general tidy around the plot and went home for tea.

I have been busy doing other things lately so have not visited the allotment since my last entry. This morning I had a very quick visit to take some compostibles from home to the allotment compost bin. I then collected my remaining seeds, and returned home to sort out what seeds need to be replaced  ready for next seasons order.
