We got an allotment at Easter. It was a bare patch of earth. Charlotte worked at planting the vegetables and my little project is ahem, the architectural little bit in the middle....:-)
Things change so quickly down at the allotment. The peas have come on with all the wet weather, as have the courgettes (although the mice have had more of them than we have).
I can't explain how soul enhancing having a patch of earth to scratch around in is. It's wonderful
