I harvested the potatoes last week – about 25kg weight – am really pleased. There are still four or five pots of potatoes, but they can stay there for a while. I might plant the pots up again before Christmas though, in the greenhouse. I’ve not tried that before. We pulled all the broad beans plants too, lovely with an onion sauce for Sunday lunch!

So I had a vacant space – no longer! I’ve been out in the garden, dodging the showers, and have sown peas, beetroot, carrots, rocket and salad mix, as well as planting out some lettuce, chard and kale. I’m not sure if any of the seeds will germinate, apart from the peas – small seeds struggle in my sandy soil, but anything will be a bonus. And I’ve sown some more lettuce and cabbage (primo) in pots …

The weather had been horrid for so long – we have had some sunshine over the weekend, but it’s beginning to get me down (although I really don’t like the hot weather) … there’s still a couple of weeks before the children finish school …
