First allotment harvest

We worked hard at the allotment for a couple of hours this morning and brought home our first produce - these lovely carrots which we ate with our lunch! There are lots more almost big enough to harvest.

The greenhouses are now looking very jungle-like with all the tomato and cucumber plants. Our neighbour has given us two melon plants too. The peas are climbing their canes and the strawberries are putting out runners which we are potting for next year.

Today we weeded around the leeks, broccoli and parsnips and watered ready for what is forecast to be a hot weekend.
