Been at work all day and it was a very busy service. I didn't really want to go to the allotment this evening but the watering needed doing or my runner bean plants would perish! I drove down rather than walked; I don't think my legs would have carried me up to hill on the way home!
The runner beans are fine and I'm glad I went because they were thirsty. I put some netting over the raised beds to protect cabbages from pigeons (I'm sure they sit in the trees watching and waiting for me to leave), turned over one of the recently dug beds to expose some annual weed roots, made several trips to and from the stream fetching cans of water and then sat in the shade of the shed just listening to the birds. They are SO noisy! I have one more day before the end of the Easter holidays and uni starts again and I think I'll spend it defining the next border. Maybe I'll plant some bulbs.
