Chris and I have got quite into the idea of producing as much of our ow food as we can and have taken on an allotment... well half an allotment actually... we need easing in gently! I took a day off this week to spend some time on the house and garden. My first view of our patch this week had me thinking "Oh dear!" But with a bit of elbow grease I'd soon worked my way across half the patch and got carrots, onions and courgettes planted.
Today Chris provided some extra muscle and dug over the remainder of the plot. Fox decided that digging looked great fun. I'm not sure that we want to encourage that on our veg plot, Chris!
Our friend Tash, who has the plot next door, told us that there is another plot going free this year, so we are going to make a joint effort at potato growing on that bit.
