Hhhhmmmmm.....Hello...anybody there??

Wow...i have been a bad gardener, a bad blogger, a bad writer and incredibly busy....my allotment looked more like a derelict pasture than anything....if there's anybody reading... (which considering the length of time since I last wrote i wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't!!) I will give  you a qucik peek....ready for it......

its an allotment..honest!
Needless to say a got a bit of a talking to from the committee and quite rightly so, I didn't mean to let it get like this. I had fully intended on sorting it at easter but the weather was so diabolical that there just wasn't chance and then life got incredibly busy....so there I was planning in my head when I would get on with things and then a car pulled over!!
I really should have got a letter but a quiet word fron the secretary had me making promises which I intended to keep...after all this time I did not intend to loose my beloved allotment.

So anyway, that was two and a half weeks ago...I haven't got it all done yet...along with my entire plot looking like this I also had the bee plot to sort as the grass was above knee high. I have been working on that ont too but will share that next time.

So what do I have now???....

Tada!! I have earth...and under that earth are seeds!!

I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself!!
So as you can see..still a lot to do but I am alive, well and pretty crackered from all the work I have put in so far.

I have more to plant but in order to do that I have more to clear but as of today I am going to try and keep writing and I will also share with you some of my exciting new crops.

Hope all my readers are well and that those of you who garden are having a less tiresome season than me!!

And there goes another one!!

Month that is..I can't believe how quickly they are flying by!!

Nothing much happening on the allotment front.

The bees are all sorted for winter.

The plot is as weedy as it could be but I won't stress over it...it's winter after all...time to kick back and relax for a bit...as if.....so much to do!!

So I am getting on with things and getting sorted for christmas...just think..if I manage to miss another month of writing then christmas will be all over and done with and the days will already be getting longer!!

But I don't intend to miss another month...I just need to get into the swing of things again...I love my blogs and my writings...and I think (in my head anyway) that I will be getting more on top of this aspect...not just to keep you guys coming back and reading but for my own personal satisfaction too...after all this is my diary of sorts and I really think when I am keeping the blog up to date then I am staying on top of things on the plot too.

I want to grow some wonderful products next year and  have my eye on a few exciting new bits to try too so watch this space.

Well this was a bit of an impromptu post but I don't want to leave you with just words but write now all I have handy to share is my Queen....

2017 queen marked yellow.
Isn't she a beauty?? I didn't snap the photo. It was taken by another beekeeper and a fantastic photographer. I highly recommend him so if you need a photographer for an event or just for a family portrait (including your pets!!) then you can find John Perring here. I highly recommend him!
