It's been a while...


….since I posted pictures on here but I haven’t been sitting down eating chocolate well not much… honest!

We have taken on another project as we were slowing running out of space in our own gardens and when a used nappy was thrown over our hedge from next door (right into our little veg patch) we decided it was time to see about an allotment.

So we went to see some guys and was lucky enough to get one the same day

Needless to say it was the worst one on the site but we buckled down and set to work.

Now things are growing and I look back and think thank goodness that nappy was thrown over otherwise we would be missing out on this new adventure of being Allotmenteers!

Yummy, yum,

No wonder you haven't been to GOY for a while! What a lot of hard work - well done. You have achieved so much! As Irish said, YUK! about the nappy.

You have been so busy, but I can see it was all worth it.

My Dad always said "Something good always comes from something bad." The "bad" must have been really horrid, but look how good the "good" is! Well done! What a great achievement.

I did wonder at times what you were up to, Hel - now I know. What a great stroke of luck - to get an allotment on the same day as you inquired about one. Looks like the hard work is quickly paying rewards, though. Yummy!

Thanx guys for your nice words I wish you all lived near us because then not only will Bob and I reap the rewards but you guys will too because home grown stuff is the best!
