This is my second little harvest of sweet peas from the allotment and hopefully not the last. They smell absolutely divine and I couldn’t resist cutting a few ox-eye daisies and popping them all in a jam jar to take home. Last year my sweet pea harvest was was pretty poor, I planted them out rather late so they didn’t have a chance to grow underneath the monster leaves of the munchkin pumpkins. This year however, they had a head start and I’m hoping they will cover the archway and give me lots of beautiful flowers to pick throughout the Summer.
I’ve also started a new collection of vintage toy tractors which will sit nicely on a shelf in my cabinet inside the shed. Don’t ask me why, I just love them! Even when the paint is peeling off the metal and they look a bit tatty I just fall completely in love. To start my collection off is this lovely little red tractor which I found at a car boot sale and just couldn’t resist. Now whenever I go to a market or car boot I’m always on the look out for old, little metal tractors to sit on my shelf!
