Early June on the plot

My first allotment post since November 2016!

I did some remodelling of the beds during the winter and early spring and the warm spell since mid May has meant everything has sprung into life. We've experienced our normal late May/early June drought but some much needed rain is forecast soon.
Now harvesting lettuce,salad leaves,chard and radish after having quite a prolonged period cutting purple sprouting broccoli in the "hungry gap".
