Fallow period - holidays

Another weed growing period - the traditional British seaside holiday. Somewhat bracing this year. A wet beach, with beach huts closed up against the stiff northerly wind.

Not a bikini in sight.

No swimmers in the sea, either.

Couldn't resist taking a photo of the local plant:

It wasn't all cold and wet, thankfully.

Back home to weed clearing operations, for the umpteenth time. The green peas were submerged.

A good crop of mouldy strawberries was building up.

Something was eating the broccoli, despite the netting.

But there was some reward, and suddenly it did feel like summer.
