Another morning on the allotment today sorting out loads more things. I took a car load of stuff up to our local tip. They’re very strict at my tip or recycling centre, as they prefer to be called. You can bring as much recyclable stuff as you like, for example wood, metal, green waste etc. But if you have soil, rubble, basically anything for the “inert” section then you can only bring a small amount or you have to pay. This is a very stupid idea, as it means more people now fly tip! This costs the council more in the long run, so I don’t see what they’re hoping to achieve. Fortunately I only had metal, some general rubbish and mainly wood. The wood are old fence posts, but are crumbling to pieces. The weather was incredibly cold today, so I had on my scarf and wooly hat. Apparently it was 2 degrees, but felt like -1!! It did also try to snow. Thank goodness it was only a few very small flakes, but that’s more than enough thank you. It’s going to get colder over the next couple of days before it warms up again, but only just a tad! So if you’re not mad like me and don’t want to venture outside yet, then you can still do some gardening inside in the warm. Now is the perfect time to start chitting your potatoes, so that they get lovely stumpy shoots on them. Here is how I chit my spuds!
