Dh and I have managed to cover the plot completely with black plastic. We are leaving it on for at least a month before we start digging. This is what it looked like today when we were done.
And the best part…was getting to know my neighbours…there’s Yvette who has been in the allotments for four years…friendly and happy to answer all my beginners questions…then there’s the beekeeper opposite…dd3 was so impressed with her ‘suit’…she now wants to know how bees make honey…I anticipate a visit to the library…then there’s the very friendly older Irish chap who has been at the allotments for 20 years!!!!!
Could not think of a better way to spend my weekend…how was your weekend?
Salaams y hasta la vista,
