A little bit of thinning

The allotment has continued to grow...even on those days Emma forgets the camera!
The camera has missed a visit from the local fox, and the start of the hoeing, and our first visitor; can life really get more exciting than that??

The plants have continued to come on leaps and bounds (compare to photo on May 12th). The beans can now be seen without a microscope and the radishes have had to be thinned out. There is still no sign of the carrots, spring onions, or beetroot, but I'm sure there is plenty of time yet.

The thinned-out radishes have been thrown onto the composter along with a variety of household bits and pieces...should we really be throwing in half a loaf of bread?
