I managed to get to the allotment in the afternoon, just after one shower and was very lucky to do quite a lot of work. Finished under a very dark sky, the rain came soon after I got home.
The main thing is the harvest though. I picked two large plastic boxes of raspberries and a few of my Chinese pears. They were good last year but are simply superb this year!
The pear tree is about ten years old. It was used to be in a large tub in the back garden but when I started gardening on the allotment I took it there and planted it on the plot. It didn’t do much in the first two or so years but last year it had quite a lot of fruit.
I thought it might have a break this year but the fruit is even better and certainly bigger.
