|Broad beans planted in the middle of the rows as a second crop and a great source of nitrogen.|
Habas plantado como segunda cosecha y una fuente de nitrógeno, que listo.
Covering up is about the only way I know to protect crops from the dreaded mediterranean fruit fly. On the peach trees I generally use a net, but this year there`s not a lot of fruit so I used wax coated paper bags (from the local agriculture co-op). I also did a final "thinning" of the peaches taking off any damged fruit and surplus fruits.. I have covered up the pommegranets, too, as last year they were all gubbed.

The end of August is here and the first rains have appeard. The ground desperately needed it. The beds are mainly depleted and it is time to start again. Time to sow - the mediterranean has it's joys, like two seasons a year. It was kind of strange to start with, coming from Scotland which has one shortish season per year. August here is like February there, the garden goes to sleep in a manner of speaking. Sure the summer stuff rippens up, but new growth is none and the bestial heat tolls it's price.

las sandias or watermelon
Menos mal que hemos puesto las sandias en un túnel, si no con el pedregazo hemos tenido no hubiera sandias
Just as well the water meleons are in a poly tunnel, they would have been destroyed with the hailstone storm.

Lo se es tarde para plantar bulbos de cebollas y calcots, pero voy a intentar.
I know its late to plant onion sets and shallots, however when in the U.K. I bought these and will give them a go
