We took a quick trip down to the plot yesterday evening to rescue a few courgettes from turning into marrows (although we were a bit late on that front – 5 marrows) and to put the hoe around after being tied up with other commitments over the weekend.
I managed to harvest the first 6 cobs of sweetcorn, while John dug up a couple of heads of potatoes. I cut some more lettuce and pulled up a couple of beetroot.
Now that the nights are starting to draw in, time for much evening activity on the plot is becoming limited. It wasn’t long before the sun decided it was time to retire, but it didn’t go down without putting on a beautiful show for us. Our focus turned earthwards to skyward.
Nothing beats standing on the plot on a warm summers evening, completely transfixed by the sky. Nature is beautiful and amazing.
