Welcome to our allotment blog. We've got a plot, now we're trying to figure out what we're doing! So please join us - put the kettle on, sit back, and dream about Living The Good Life...

Oh... stuff

Wow, look, there I go again, getting on with everyday life and forgetting about my poor blog. I seem to have lost enthusiasm for posting right now. Maybe it's work related, maybe it's cos there's not much new going on. But I don't feel like I have much to say. Not that will interest anyone else, anyway. We'll see. Hopefully I'll perk up again soon.

But we have been doing stuff down at the allotment, honest... just not for a couple of weeks.

Just over a fortnight ago we planted our potatoes - first and second earlies. We also did a lot of weeding and hoeing, but still the dandylions come. We've also sown tomatoes and peppers, and any day now we'll get around to doing squash and courgette as well as some salads to grow in windowboxes at home. Adam pottered off one evening and got some seed trays, pots and compost, so there's nothing stopping us now.

And.. urrr...

Maybe for the next little while I'll just try posting more pics and less words.

Bear with me...

Family fun

Our folks came to the allotment on Easter Sunday on what seems to be becoming a bit of a tradition - bacon sandwiches, tea and coffee and an Easter egg hunt for grown ups.
