We had a short committee meeting at the allotment today. It was a glorious day but far too early to do any planting. So we did a little planning and I dug up some couch grass. I had taken along my ancient wellies and some well-worn gardening gloves. I also have my own key now so I think that’s me officially plotting.
I don’t want to let this allotment excitement lead to neglecting the garden though, so yesterday I went out in the rain and tidied up some overgrown stuff and sorted out the broccoli a bit. Pigeons have been feasting on it over the winter but there are signs of new growth. I propped up the plants and put some netting on them to keep the pigeons off.
I also moved a few snowdrops that were hiding underneath the hellebore
Despite the forecast for snow and ice, spring is in the air.
