A picture post tour of some of the allotment in July 2009 ...

(there would have been more pictures of other tomato varieties had I not disturbed and annoyed a Bee that persisted in attacking Alex and I, so I gave up)

Bumper crop of Pears


Ladybird on squash

Imogen's carrots

Herb Spiral


Courgette tyre wall and Bush/Plum tomatoes

Rainbow Chard planted amongst tomatoes





  1. its all looking lovely xx what a wonderful time of the year everything exploding in edible treats x

  2. What great pictures Dawn. thanks so much for posting the herb spiral - it was really useful. for some reason I found it hard to get my head round the concept, but your pictures show exactly how I need to go about it. I am planning to have a medicinal herb spiral in the garden and keep the culinary ones I use most at the side door. Reayy enjoyed your holiday pictures - looks like you had a great time. Welcome back xxx
