The rain finally came…

So the rain finally came in Essex, it was about 2 days late and lasted for about half as long as they’d forecast be the ground got a soaking, the water butts got a filling and the vegetables got swelling.

We popped up the allotment on Wednesday night and came home with courgettes, runner beans, French beans and what I am sad to say, maybe, the last of this years broad beans. So long friends, we’ve been through so much and you have served me well.

Sorry I thought I had a picture but don’t.

And the rain bought out this rather stunning poppy.

And the sunflowers didn’t seem to mind it.

And hiding amongst the cucamelon leaves, a first for Allotment10and10a…

But all that joy is wiped out preparing runner beans for the freezer
