The past few weeks have been incredibly difficult. A visit to Justin’s favourite spot in Wales to spread his ashes, accompanied by a chest infection had me feeling pretty low. I am so thankful for all that joined us there, again, holding us up when we were struggling. Back in action again at the allotment…
December is a super busy month and getting to the allotment can be a challenge. Our key to progress is little and often. These are our most pressing tasks:
I have sown a few seeds and have a few more planned to sow in March, but there are other tasks to complete before I get carried away with the seedlings!
It’s been a little over a year since my last blog post; it was never my intention to take a break but after transitioning to full-time work (I work part-time for a care company and part-time for myself), it’s the way that things panned out.
We have taken this opportunity (it’s fairly empty) to restrengthen and recover. Well, when I say recover I mean to make use of all the odds and sods bits of plastic and glass we have. Including an old patio door, old shower doors and abandoned greenhouse parts.
It’s not essential to have a shed at the allotment, but it certainly helps to have a place to keep your tools (we don’t leave anything valuable in ours). A shed can also become a place to retreat from the showers or just tot sit, have a cuppa and make plans!
