Allotment Achievement

Well I got down the allotment for a couple of hours yesterday and then again today for another few hours.

Yesterdays weather was pretty overcast again but today the sky was clear and the sun was warm and I got finished everything that I had on my 'to do' list for this weekend.

I have to say I am very proud of my achievements.

One half of the plot has had its total winter dig and there are just the winter brassicas and leeks in there now.

I got the leeks I was given planted up in the greenhouse and the brassica bed and the new side all nicely weeded...It was a lot of work but very satisfying to complete.

Now the next task will be to dig up the potatoes but with a busy week ahead that will have to wait until the weekend!!



  1. Wow, it really looks great. I know you are pleased to have it done and looking so good.

  2. All looking very tidy! I'm not very good at doing a winter dig, which is probably why I have so many weeds appearing in the spring!

  3. That feeling of accomplishment is what makes our favorite activities all worth it. It's the same feeling I get when I encounter a new animal. And reading about that good feeling is always contagious.

  4. Wow! You must be very proud...and exhausted. Well done.

  5. You've got loads done, you put me to shame.

  6. Nothing beats a rest after hard day work!

  7. Your Brassica looks neat. It is an unspoken satisfaction to see work done :)


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