Well I found my shears, someone had borrowed them from my locker which is OK, if I had known and not spent hours searching the allotment for them, thinking that I had left them out and not put them back in my locker, which I had. Found my wheelbarrow, on the allotment next to mine, which had also been borrowed and not replaced on my allotment.  I gave permission for my shears to be borrowed again as long as they were put back in my locker.  Man who borrowed them asked my permission to sharpen them, which unfortunately I gave and he warned me that they would be very sharp (joke, they wouldn't cut nothing).  They worked perfectly before as OH had already sharpened them, but suppose he was trying to be helpful as he had used them a lot.  They were in my locker today with my kneeling pad and gloves, so I was already to cut the long grass, but my shears would not cut even one blade of grass.  No note to say sorry, I have knackered your shears, so very annoyed.  Took them home and OH spent over an hour trying to sort out the problem and he was not happy as told me not to let anyone else sharpen them, he was right as they were bent and completely useless. Hopefully he solved the problem with a lot of swearing, but I will certainly not lend them again.  No strawberries, only leaves, bird singing in the tree, lovely to listen to until I realised it has nuts all over my white cardigan.  Well think that is supposed to be lucky, or does it have to be on your head, which was last week, but still no lottery win.  Well I feel better now I have got that off my chest.  :BangHead: :BangHead:

One of my garlic cloves (largest) appears to have 2 stalks like the garlic is formed of 2 plants although its a single bulb - is that normal??

Felt like having a 'day off' gardening as such so I got my camera out and took a few photographs of some of the stuff in my garden that is in flower as you can see here:

My plots always look so big at the beginning of the year, but now they are full to the brim.  So I am beginning to throw things out to make space.  The poppies are lovely but several went yesterday for some more beans.  I have 24 broccoli and loads of purple sprouting, and more beans.  And I keep buying things reduced at the garden centre.   And I have a tray of leeks.

Will have to start on the potatoes.  The overwinter onions are next to go.   So this is where I start with the shoe horn, and the paths start to disappear, and I have to remind myself of just how big the squashes are going to get. 

And the courgettes will have to grow up posts.
