The covers are on

OS signed up for another season of cricket on Friday. Tonight a ground frost is forecast - is it just me but is the start of the cricket season always bad news for the garden?
Anyway, armed with the weather forecast I rushed to the allotment, earthed up the potatoes, covered the courgettes, cloched the lettuce and fleeced the strawberries, and depressed a plot neighbour who had just finished watering. All in a world record time of 27.5 minutes.
I once read a book called " The Half-hour Allotment" (here should you be interested).
Half and hour is for softies...


  1. I've seen that book on the shelf of bookshops before and always thought 'yeah, half an hour about 14 times a week...' ;)

  2. yep - hahahaha half an hour if you have a hired help to do all the hard work!
    Your plot lots fabulous - very proud xxxxx

  3. Wish I had had the forethought to cover my stuff...I will definitely be doing it next year!!
