I think I will retrain as an astronaut........it must be easier


Just been to a couple of meditation classes but could not agree NOT to hate slugs. The leader was a bit miffed re the slugs  but I suppose all humans , some politicians and men with beards is a start on my journey to enlightenment !!

Have a " Quiet " word with a solicitor friend


When I studied English Law when I was boring and worked in a bank this was given as a case study and it involves ( I think ) the law of Trespass

Planning the Plot

I am half way though my 4th season and now I know every thing !!!!!


I did a plan and divided my Plot  into 3 areas and started the magical  journey of Seasonal Rotation as well as planting / sowing just what I thought I would eat 


However only Area 3 which has had onions , shallots and garlic since October has been utilised


The brassica Area 1 has a few scruffy cabages and caulies and the Area 2 has some potatoes.


Overall I have only used about 2/3 rds of the Plot


I thought being an Allotmenteer was supposed to be easy !!


I suppose this is a confessional more than an achievement post !!
