I sowed a row of leeks in the early summer and they are growing nicely and a variety of sizes.
 Today I started to separate and transplant them. They are well established and much better roots than when I have grown them in pots. I'm just wondering if it's too late?

Just got my Cara late potatoes up. Skipped 20% of them  due to Eelworm. My wife has tried to salvage some by peeling enough for a couple of days but has still ended up discarding a greater percentage. Size wise very good but not many per root. I grew them some time back and had a similar problem. I also grew Harmony which went over quite quickly but had very little Eelworm problem. I find choosing a main crop from the Allotment Association a major problem as we have tried many varieties if they grow well without Eelworm problems then they boil down in the water as one of my fellow allotment neighbours has said today. In fact I have given her some of my  Cara that I chopped whilst digging them up today. Yes I get them up with a spade otherwise I fork too many. I am moving towards just growing earlies and second earlies but really do not want to go down that path as I pride my self in being almost self sufficient.

Found it on the squash plants. Some kind of wasp?

House up for sale, gave up allotment, should have kept it during lockdown, but Morrisons free sunflower seeds did well and picking sweet peas every day. Next doors white flowering beans doing well and been told to pick the ones that have come my side of the fence. So fresh beans everyday. Dulcie still doing OK and doesnt want to move and next door wants us to stay. Hope everyone is OK on this site.
