Allotmenting in August... the good and the bad

Coming back from holiday we found the allotment had turned into a bit of a wilderness... 

But amidst the weeds and the overgrown tumbling plants there was much beauty to be found.

And there was also quite a bit of produce hiding... see those yellow courgettes (zucchini)? 

The boys were busy in 'their' bed - not with planting, exacly, but mud play counts as a gardening activity, no? ;)

Overall, considering the wilderness we came back to, it wasn't a bad harvest!

    1. Thanks. It is fun, although there have been moments this year when we've really struggled to keep on top of the work and the wilderness is the direct result of that.

  2. Great harvest, the beautiful taste of summer.

    1. It is lovely, isn't it? It's so rewarding when all that hard work in the spring starts to pay off.

  3. So lovely! I'm jealous of your flowers and produce.
