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

They're here again
You would think with the lack of rain in these parts (24.2mm since April 1st) that the weeds might be a little more subdued this year. But they aren't. I have just spent 2 hours weeding and I'm still too ashamed to post the pictures...
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!
I know how you feel... By the time I've got halfway it's already time to start at the beginning again!ReplyDelete
I know that feeling well...I always say i would be very well fed if my veggies grew as well as the weeds...maybe we should just start eating the weeds!!ReplyDelete
Nooo don't be ashamed, we've all been there and will no doubt be there again even if we're not there at the moment... Posting pics means you'll be able to watch your progress too... :)ReplyDelete
