As my back improved with a regime of exercises I felt I could do just a little on the plot. I came down for a light session, but with help. I therefore cajoled my family and visitors to come down and help harvest the potatoes, raspberries and french beans. My grandson helped dig out the row of Charlotte potatoes and then lift some onions and shallots while my wife and granddaughter harvested berries and beans.
Watering was also achieved with me issuing instructions to my willing grandson.
