Had 3 runner beans, which were delicious 2 days ago, and with all the rain went to the allotment but no beans, but they are flowering well.  Little Miss Impatient.  Picked another yellow courgette, and the raspberries that I cut right down are just starting to produce.  Hopefully the heavy rain will mean beans soon.

My apple tree is so loaded that I have taken some of the smaller apples off, but did get some at the top of the tree for blackberry and apple crumble/pie and apple sauce.  If I was allowed to sell produce, I think the bramley apples would have paid for my allotment fee, but hopefully I will have enough to give away. It will need a good prune next year, as the pears, plums and coxs apples have not done so well, but I do like a good apple pie.  :sunny: :sunny:  Plenty of blackberries, but not as many as last year as all the allotments have been taken, and I can not forage for them. but I have enough for us on my allotment.

Whilst my wife and son are away and I have more time*.  I want to dig a pond and move the old pond there.  It is about 1.5m long , 0.75 m wide and 1m deep (might make the new one deeper any thoughts).
I want to do this because it is in such deep shade it is dead (I think I will check).
Anyway can I do this in 2 weekends and 5  1 hour sessions in the evenings?  Or is it too difficult? I am not very fit.

The allotment next to me has a lovely beech tree, which has loads of nuts on it, which obviously they pick later in the year.  This beech tree self seeded onto my allotment and must admit I have cutting it right down, but it grows regardless.  I only have one nut on it this year, also her peach tree has self seeded onto my allotments.  My question is do I dig them all out as they do not seem to be the same as the original tree, which seems odd to me.
