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

Wow...i have been a bad gardener, a bad blogger, a bad writer and incredibly 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 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!!


  1. Hooray! You're really alive. :)

    First thought on allotment pic: chickens would love that. Lol. Amazing difference you've made already.

    My sequel is still in the works but would love to hear your thoughts on the story I'm posting as I write.

  2. What a difference. I know you soon lick the plot into shape once you get going on it and you'll be pleased you have when you're harvesting all those delicious crops.

  3. I’m still here! You have done a remarkable job in such a short time. This year is being a challenge for us too, It started too wet and too cold and ended up too hot and too dry. The wood pigeons are being even more destructive than usual and nothing seems to slow down the slugs and snails.

  4. Delighted to see you back in the swing!

  5. That first picture looks like any picture taken from outside my house. But I've actually been working to improve my property a bit for once too. It can be hard when things fall behind.

  6. You haven’t posted for a while. I hope everything is OK

  7. Where have you gone ? ....Happy Christmas ! :)


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