Well at least you've been able to be busy with the camera whilst it's so wet ;>) Those of us lucky enough to have nice weather have been concentrating on the digging!

The steps look like the slope of my allotment ;>)

I know Wales gets a lot of rain, but to almost get stuck in the mud-gosh! Sounds like you need all the compostable material you can get hold of to improve drainage- commercial waste or not!
I hope your supermarket garlic grows well. Mine has been in a month and is only just showing above the soil!

Thanks for your comment. I've been reading through your blog (it's a good read) and it looks like even though you don't have experience of poo in the rain you're a hardened expert when it comes to mud and steps!

If I've read the history right, this is your first year. If so, good luck with it.

Hello from the US. I'm not familiar with the term allotment - it's a piece of rented ground?

I am trying to fill the compost bins up with everybodies veggie scraps so hopefully I'll have some good stuff by spring-ish

Allotment Boss,
Yes, we started in Sept this year and have the lottie looking like this already I am just hoping that with more hard work after the winter sleep she willspring into life ! I am hoping to get my own poo soon (so to speak !) so there may be a merry tale to tell yet !

Wow - I have gone international I have an American reader - three months ago it was just me and my mam !! In answer to your question an allotment is a piece of ground rented usually from the local council allowing people without their own space to grow vegetables. As you can see, if you go back through my posts, you will see that my particular allotment is as good as abandoned, however around Britain I have heard stories of up to 9 year waiting lists for plots so I am one of the lucky ones.

Thank you dear readers for your comments!! Its great to know there are people out there !!!

Thanks - We'd call that a community garden here. Such places that I've seen look so nice and well taken care of during the growing season. I hope you have some good wellies!

I have decided that I'm rather a failure at gardening. The only thing I can grow well is turnips and kale. I'm better with animals.
