Munch, munch, munch

We spent part of Saturday at the allotment tending to our crops, training (or more like taming!) the blackberries, watering (through lack of any rainfall and a hot sunny week), and harvesting.

We are not the only ones harvesting on the Broad Beans - these lovely friends of the garden and allotment are having a feast too! We believe in letting nature deal with pests. I really should blog about my philosophy on permaculture and how I apply the principles to gardening, one for another day.

Here are some of Imogen's planted seeds - she wrote the labels too, really good for 3½.

And an updated picture of the Herb Spiral, the plants are settling in well and growing lovely. I still need to plant more into this sometime.
