July 17th – harvesting and hanging baskets

Digging up the first spuds of the year
The rain last week made everything grow really fast so we were able to dig up potatoes, red onions and shallots.

Just a few this week, plenty more to come
It was very hot so after watering all the plants, we spent the hottest part of the day in the cool shade of the parasol.  We ate our lunch and had plenty of cold drinks

Ed brought his hanging basket and flowers to plant for his entry to the Lambeth Country Show this weekend. He showed the group how to plant it up and the finished basket won 2nd prize.  Well done Ed!!

We left the basket in the shade and gave it plenty of water.
