Our lovely allotment in Hungerford, Berkshire. Photos of planting, harvesting, (occasional) vegetarian cooking and wildlife to show what makes Plot 7 (Plot 8 and Plot 3) such a great place to spend time!
A record of successes, failures and it's a handy reminder for me too!
2017 brings a song title and video to every post - enjoy!
So close to Spring, but it wasn't feeling like it this weekend. I've been reading blogs from warmer climates - Ki Si in Spain with such amazing blue skies and hot temperatures which mean she's harvesting already and Endah in Indonesia with her interesting fruits and beautiful flowers.
Not that we don't have beautiful flowers and our fruit and veg will grow eventually... it's just so tempting to wish the months away...
But there are many signs now that Spring is on its way and not just in all the UK blogposts.
It's a good job time isn't moving too quickly though we have managed to do more preparation on Plot 7 this weekend, in the cool breeze with grey skies.
Jamie's dug most of the quarter where the onions are going, they're due to be delivered any day now - I wouldn't let him dig up the last of the carrots as I want to use them in cooking during the week.
I cleared out one of the strawberry beds - there were so many snails and spiders hiding in there! That should make the plants happier, along with the plant food we watered them with afterwards.
So there was time for daydreaming, but time for working too. I Monster provide the music..
