Well this is it. The allotment! Not that it looks like one at the moment. More like a piece of wasteland covered in weeds. Since we first visited other allotment owners have thrown hedge trimmings and all sorts on it. The one next door has been re fenced and we can now see the rubbish that has accumulated ( fizzy drink cans mainly) down the side. We heard from another owner that a few years ago the council bulldozed all the buildings on the section where we are and consequently somewhere under all the foliage there is a concrete greenhouse base and wall surround and more worryingly broken glass.
Are we disheartened? Probably. Are we giving up? Not at the moment. Gardener SockBunny came with us and she suggested that we think small and clear a little patch at a time. Very wise!
I thought. Biddle stayed at home and waited for the sport to begin. I'll update on our progress.
Work does not seem to be picking up, only one day last week and none this so far and so I am trying to occupy my time. . There is also an issue over the way one agency is going to pay wages which I have t get to grips with. I won't go into this anymore at the moment.
Most of my crafty activities will now involve secret Santa type things for people for Christmas so there won't be many photos of what I am up to. One is almost finished and I am very pleased and want to keep it here with me.
It's October tomorrow, where is the year going? Its still reasonably warm and we still have not had any rain we obviously had it all in July and August. It's supposed to get colder at the weekend.
Annoyingly my RSS reader is not working and so I am behind on blog reading. This means I am doing other things like (sewing, reading) face booking.
Thank you if you pass by please leave a message I Love hearing from you
