Seedlings

We have seedlings! With much thanks to Little Wilson 3, we have tons of seeds in situ. We have pumpkins, peas, carrots, spinach, onions, cabbage, parsnips and broccoli. We also have potatoes chitting in the downstairs loo (like you do).

We can’t wait to get them in the ground!!!!!

Getting The Kids Involved

The kids are really enjoying visiting and working on the allotment. They have commandeered their own corner of the plot and have already sown some runner beans (lets hope the frost stays away). We spent 5 hours on Sunday digging and clearing, and not once did we hear “I’m bored/tired/hungry”. They were all desperate for a job (which became a bit of a struggle to find them something appropriate to do) and had boundless amounts of energy. We even had comments from other lottie holders about how nice it was to see them getting stuck in.

I really hope they continue to enjoy it, and that their beans grow!!!!!

Finally Some Sunshine!!

We’ve had birthday parties, weekends away and some awful weather to keep us away from our allotment, but this weekend we FINALLY managed to get down there!

We took up a load of the old carpet that had been left by the previous holder. Cheers for that. While it was great not having to get rid of the grass, it was hard work yanking up tons of sodden and grass riddled carpet. Not to mention the fact that we now have to get rid of it somehow.

We’ve managed to pop in a path or two and turn over some of the “beds”.
