A blog describing how we use our allotment and what we grow there.

I expect to get some new visitors to the blog this week!
We(I)put up the bean poles in anticipation - not that I've planted any beans yet you understand. I persuaded OH to come and help me. OS is still digging out the compost YS is still digging up the asparagus (I could lose my sense of humour over this)and OH followed their lead and did his own thing (tidying my shed). So I did them on my own. It was a bit fiddly and involved some new moves that I don't normally associate with gardening, but still... They are not bad, even though I do say so myself. I can almost taste the beans already.
In case you were wondering, the green stuff in the background is work in progress, otherwise known as weeds. Ah well, a girl can't do it all on her own.
I've always had a passion for plants especially edible ones. We have a young family so it seemed the ideal time to get an allotment in rural Leicestershire and get them involved. We have a small half plot and aim to make it productive and fun. If I can do it you can too - get digging!
