A lovely day so....

The first hint of Spring was in the air today, nice and sunny although still rather cold. However it did mean that I could put in a serious effort and get the centre section dug and cleared all the way to the bottom of the plot. This now leaves a narrow strip alongside the path to deal with and I will be all ready for a major spud planting session!

End in sight...

Some nice weather and I have reached the far end of the plot on the far side. Very encouraging....

Glutton for punishment?

I have unpacked my brush cutter today, braving the drizzle and fog to attack the two overgrown and bramble infested allotments at the top end of ours. This is not an act of benevolence but purely to slow down the encroachment on our plots.....

Before....




After....

Another day...another few feet...

I have reached the bonfire.... It is still a little too wet to light so I have decided to continue digging past it and leave it on an island to dig after it has gone. I am now within  10 feet of the end of the plot!
