May is a glorious month. The weather has been warm and the ground dry. I have had to bring my son along. He is thirty six and,let's face it, faster than I am. I let him get on with the watering while I dealt with the planting. It took ages today, as England has been going through a warm, dry patch. I am glad of a younger man, and am hopeful that his wife,who has expressed an interest in taking part in the allotment, will come along, for many hans make light work.
The late frost in April has killed the aubergine [egg plant] and the potatoes suffered because of frost, but they are recovering. I am waiting a few days before I plant tomatoes because of frost, but several of the vegetables are growing nicely.
