I may have already mentioned it but about 6 months ago I took on an allotment. I’ve really missed gardening since we’ve been in this flat and Mr M and I just decided to go for it. We did quite a bit in the first month including putting up a shed. Then winter arrived and at the same time we discovered what a horrible job putting rabbit-proof-fencing up is – we didn’t get much done for a while.
Last weekend we had a blitz. We finished the fencing, and planted loads of stuff!
Here I am gleefully stomping the last bit of chicken wire in to the ground.

Newly planted fruit trees – 2 apples, a cherry and an apricot
Raspberry canes. Hopefully these sprout soon.
We also planted 3 rows of broad beans (I like broadies but if they all come up I’m going to be sick of them!), garlic, red onions, shallots and first early potates (variety Maris Bard).
It’s just the start really – I had a seed buying spree when we bought the fruit trees so there’s plenty more to go in.
We need to dig over 4 more beds to have enough space for everything we want to grow.
