The allotment always cheers you up when you’re feeling rather upset and down, so does my family and my chickens. I was only able to be down the allotment for a very short time this afternoon. I won’t bore you with all the details, but I was hoping to be down for most of the day today, but let’s just say our beautiful car was hurt again, early Sunday morning and we had to wait for a replacement this morning. Our car will be made all better on Wednesday, but then I’ll have to spend a considerable amount of time trying to vac up the glass. The more I think about it the more upset I get, so I’ll stop now.
So with all that happening I went to the allotment this afternoon for a bit of “Happy time”. I managed to dig up 1 cabbage and 1 potato plant before I got a phone call and had to come back home. Still the sizes of potatoes I managed to dig up, from just that one plant made me very happy indeed. They were all very sizeable ones but the 2 largest I’m going to share with you. So here they are in all their glory.
No personal best, that was last year and stands at a whopping 1 lb 9.4 oz, but there are still lots more potatoes to harvest, so I may get a new personal best on the potatoes. I’ll let you know.
Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. I’m planning on spending as much of it as possible at the allotment.
