As it was actually a sunny and warm Bank Holiday Monday here today (a rarity) we thought we’d better show our faces at our long neglected allotment.


We needn’t have worried about how it was getting along without us though.

Everything was in the best of health… 

Three happy, grubby hours later some order was restored and our favourite herb planted in abundance.

If I leave a pot of coriander on the kitchen table Joe can often be found tucking in to leaf after fragrant leaf.





Though he refuses to eat it in an actual meal.

    A garden is so fun and fulfilling.

    Oh lucky you to have an allotment. I guess everyone here assumes because many of us have back yards that we don’t need allotments. But I still think it is such a great idea.

    Love his plant label. And that snail looks way too healthy for my liking.
