I managed to sneak away yesterday and spend some lovely me time down at the allotment. It was a glorious sunny day and I REALLY enjoyed my trip there!
|Before I started|
|Lots to do|
I decided it had to be prepare the potato section for this year ( seeing as I bought my first batch of seed potatoes for this year on Friday) and so I got going- clearing the patch to enable the digging to begin. I had forgotten how lovely the earth smells as it is dug, clean , earthy and crumbly with the occasional whiff of onion as I found the remnants of last years crop. Absolutely fantastic- with lots of promise for the coming year.
|Over half way|
|Time for refreshments - but forgot the coffee :(|
|Spread some muck and compost and its ready!|
I can't wait to get down there again. Shush don't tell any one I hope to go again today if things permit so kept your fingers crossed for me!
|A bonus crop of parsnips and leeks- so soup and roast parsnips today1|
