Busy Days.

Well we have had some decent rain this week so I decided it was time to start giving the allotment it's winter dig. I didn't get down the plot until 2:30pm so I didn't have much time but I got a good start getting about a third of the allotment rough dug and fertilizing as I went!!

I had a few weeds to dig out and a nasty patch of grass to get up but I got all that done first and so hopefully I will get back tomorrow morning and get the rest dug over and fertilized and then I can rest for the winter and plan for next spring.

I saw Kate up the allotment setting her winter broad beans and I have yet to do this but I will wait a couple more weeks before I set mine.

What I started with...and Kate in the background working on her allotment.

I am quite pleased with how well things have worked out this year and I'm just hoping I can do as well next year when I (hopefully) have a bit more land to work.

When I get it all dug over I will let you know and post a will be very not exactly pretty..but neat!! :-)


  1. I wish I had your ambition. I have flower bed around my house that look horrible. Brown is a nice color too :) Have a great day.

  2. This is the kind of thing I'm missing. I like traveling through nature, but I'd like a nice place to plant things too. I need to work on that idea.

  3. I wish our plots looked this good "before" the winter dig !!

  4. Hi Ann....I think I am just to much of a neat freak to let it get the better of me!!! really should start growing's a great sense of achievement...and after all you have made me put a good camera on my christams

    Garry, Jen and Ruby...I'm sure your plots are just great...but thanks for the confidence boost. :-)


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
