Another quick allotment trip!

Well all I seem to be doing lately is making quick trips to the allotment.

My Mum gave me a couple of planters she didn't want so I popped down the allotment and added them to those already on the gravel and filled them do they are ready as soon as the weather is warm enough for me to put seeds in.

I also sowed some Aubergine seeds as Jo over at The good Life told me that they too need a long germination time...thanks for the tip Jo.

Apart from that not much is really happening on the plot at the minute though we have had a few dry days and I am hoping it keeps up so that I can get those raised beds I told you about a while ago in place and sorted for there future plan!!

Been gardening today...it was nice to see so much activity and I also saw some frogs out of hibernation and heading for the pond...not mine unfortunately but I will be releasing the ones I have in the tank this weekend.

I sowed a few petunia seeds around the pond and got a couple of cabbages for dinner!!

After tea the lawn got it's first haircut of the year...Yay...Spring really has arrived!!

Oh and totally unrelated...allotment4you has now officially got 100 followers and has more than 250 posts...hope you are all still enjoying reading my sometimes whiny, sometimes mundane and occasionally funny posts!!

I would just like to take this opportunity to thanks you all for stopping by.

    I can't believe you've already mowed your grass. It seems like we'll never get there with this weather we have

    Our grass is still too muddy to mow!

  5. It's certainly not dry here today. We had a huge downpour this morning and the wind is rearing it's ugly head again. Congratulations on reaching 100 followers, hope there's many more posts to come.
