It’s happening slowly but surely, but the allotment is slowly getting to the place where I’m feeling happy and not over whelmed with weeds. I managed to weed, feed and water a load more today which was great. It was a funny sort of day and I spent from 10am-3pm playing. I don’t think I’ve ever spent that long on my plot before. My sister popped along at noon and we started to get some of the glass in the greenhouse. The roof is now done, just the sides to go and then the door to put on. We’ll get together next week, and finish it off. You do need 2 people to put in the glass, it just makes it much easier to do. Before Michelle arrived I put in my Pop Corn, and a selection of Pumpkins and Squashes. There is a lot of manure in the bed, so hopefully they’ll be very happy and grow well. I’m not sure if I’ll break my record for my heaviest pumpkin, but I’ll let you know when I harvest them in October. You never know, so watch this space.
Once Michelle had gone I carried on for another hour or so before I left to take some bits to the rubbish tip and then home for a lovely cold drink. I got in just moments before George came in from school. He found me with the chickens giving them some corn, talking to them in the only way I know how (“Hello babies, have you been good?”) and collecting the 6 eggs they laid today (“You have been clever!”). They’re very good girls. Well that’s all for today. The weekend is busy (no change there), but I’m sure I’ll find some time to get in the garden.
