A blog describing how we use our allotment and what we grow there.
Wednesday, 3 February 2010
I always get into trouble at this time of year as I'm desparate to get on with things (not sure why as the digging / clearing up / pruning has not been done yet) so YS and I dusted off the toilet rolls and planted peas and broad beans to try and get an early start after the over wintered ones didn't.
We get pleasure from small things in this house so when YS went to the toilet this morning he was very excited to find...
So he had one, and that created another toilet roll and so the cycle continues...
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!
