>Allotment 16- Sun, Water and weeds


This week is scorching, there is a high demand for water and for some reason the weeds seem to grow as I watch. The cages are keeping the birds off the cabbages for now, my potatoes are in leaf, the onions are about 10 cms tall, and the first flowers are showing on my beans. The mixed salad is growing well but not enough to eat. Radishes are coming up well but the leaves seem to attract flea beetles so are full of holes.
 Pictures below show the current state of play and the strange cage constructions,
