I have managed to get a few bits done down the allotment with a little tidying and also a little digging but I have to admit that it hasn't been a lot of work carried out. I did also bring my seed home to sort through several weeks ago now and they still sit in their nice little tin. I am definitely going to be going through them this weekend though...after all if I don't soon get sorted out I will never have anything to harvest come summer.

So things aren't too bad but then they aren't great. I still have potatoes to remove before I can get other things in the ground and I can' say I'm hoping to get anything form these but considering what I did mange to dig up last year I don't think I have missed out on anything there. On other news, we had our A.G.M. last week. It was quit4 a nice turn out. I am still a committee member. The only major change was the secretary and then a couple of new people joined the committee too. Rent rates were set with water reduced by 50% over last year due to the wet year we had. If it is dry this year obviously it will go back up again. The allotment shop has opened up again and we are now selling seeds at very cheap rates. This is a first trial year but I think great idea as you can by small quantities and they will be on hand if you just want a few extras.
I made a decision on my front garden. I am going to seed it back to grass. What I forgot to mention in my post was that my garden is on a slope and I was worried about the soil washing out in heavy rain so I think this will be the best idea. Also will be easier to mow. Haven't decided what I'm going to put in the front bed yet this year...that I will have to wait and see on for now as going through the seeds for the allotment is becoming rather urgent.
The weather has been really up and down here...just when you are lulled into a false sense of security that Spring has arrived it turns cold and foggy again and they are even predicting more snow for the weekend. I really have had enough of winter now. I want to get in the garden and get things sorted and start my new project for me little bit of nature for the bees. So many plans in my head that haven't even started all due to the weather. On the plus side though we are seeing more daylight. Shouldn't be too much longer before it's light when I leave work....how I miss the summer evenings!
Well I guess that's about it for now. I have lots more to say but I guess spreading it out might be a better option and give me more reason to sit down at the computer more frequently.
Here's hoping the weather man is wrong and we are in for a sunny weekend!!
