Sorry – nothing to do with allotments or growing really, just a rant!
Digging yet more rocks where I didn't expect to find them and a ton of horse manure, yes!

A trip to The Village, cooked for by a top chef and planting blueberries in a bath
Late sowings, shopping and a method of sowing peas in half trays with perfect spacing.

Finally got my strimmer going, bit of a rant about 'ealth an' safety and digging up rocks and yet more rocks

Answering some questions on e-coli, weedkiller, cuckoo spit and onions.
Getting together with neighbours to bulk buy the lime and fertilisers etc saves us a packet.
