I finally got myself organised enough to go to the allotment today - I haven't been in ages and it has started to become a "should go to the allotment" rather than "want to go" thing - which is never good. There is just so much to do and the list was getting bigger and more intimidating the longer I stayed away............
The priority today was to decide where I wanted to plant my potatoes this year and get started on digging the beds
So here are the photos from before
(whilst reading a text from Lesley - don't you love those rigger boots?)and after
Not finished obviously but enough done to tidy it up, get me back into the mood for gardening, and to give me a very stiff back (I'm currently relying on the anaesthetic properties of white wine to make it feel better)
An exciting discovery at the allotment was my very first frog in the pond we dug last year!
When I popped back home before collecting the Little Lockets I was very pleased to discover a parcel with familiar handwriting. I dashed up to school with it and ripped open the envelope while waiting for the little critters. I then had to get a friend to hold the package for the obligatory blog photo (I think she thought I was rather strange............!)
I had bought this gorgeous little basket from Lesley's shop as soon as I saw it listed (and made the children late for school that day in my desperation to get it!)
what I hadn't bought, or expected were all these goodies inside
Lesley, you are an absolute star - thank you so much!
I'll leave you tonight with a rather strange photo
