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…
Grief is a very dark place full of memories of what has been and dashed hopes of what would be…
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:
We were doing so well the kids’ vaccinations were imminent, and we were breezing into the Autumn months with plans of sowing our onions and garlic at the weekend. Boom, COVID hits our household like a tonne of bricks, likely caught at school.
When we first embarked on growing our own potatoes, we found that’s there a little more to it than chucking them in. I’m talking first earlies, earlies and main crop.
When we took on our first allotment plot, we were so eager to get going; in hindsight, there are a few things that I would have done differently. Here are some of the things I wish I could have told myself from the onset.
I try to grow my onions from seed, but I couldn’t resist this pack of my favourite Red Barron onions from home bargains, just 99p!
