At last all is planted and now growing well in our allotments.
The month of May has been up and down with the weather and it began with some chilling winds which didn’t do our newly planted sweetcorn any good.. We thought we might have lost it as it turned very pale yellow and the leaves began to die back.. but then some Sun shines and Magic happens.
We have both been busy weeding, it seems no amount of chill keeps the weeds from flourishing and between us we have kept it pretty much clear.
I wanted some flowers in the allotments this year so I grew some Asters from seed and the canes are my granddaughters Sunflowers.. there are more seeds in the ground.. but these were her special ones she grew in pots.
Here she is laughing she wanted to gather up the potatoes her granddad had dug up and put them into a bag.. She even allowed a spider to crawl over her hand as it ran across them.. I was so pleased she showed no fear of it.. ( I am trying to teach her how everything has a place in the garden.. as the spiders eat the flies etc ) And that all creatures have a right to life..

I hope all of your gardens are doing well?..
