Late August allotments

Took some late August photos for the annuls, showing the plots 20 months on from when we did our first  clearance work on the site.Everything is looking abundant.

There's a particularly attractive combination of veg and flower planting at the top of Kath,Chris and Steven's plots.

 The bees (wasps?) are busy on the Buddleia

 On my own plot I've decided to leave any of the spiky globe artichokes to flower.

I've just started harvesting sweet corn and reckon that it's about three weeks earlier than last year.

A bee and a hoverfly on your buddleia. The bees will love the artichoke flower when it opens - they burrow right in to the flowers.

AS for plot abundance after all these years plotting it never ceases to amaze me how the plot changes over summer. The season is all too short though.

Great photos and everything is looking well.
