    A touch too much Good Life at an impressionable age?

    The allotment: as if I don't have enough guilt in my life with 2 children and a part time job that should be full time. And a cat. And a garden. Oh and a husband,

    Haven't made it down there for months between the snow & grumpy ill children. Got some blackcurrant bushes from the ILs last week and they needed to go in the ground before the snow comes again. Surprisingly, it was lovely digging down there, nice & soft and easy. Got the bushes plantedm plus some garlic which I've had for 3 months now. Oops. Still, the leeks are growing and the onions too, although I've culled the cabbage.

    And we had a bagful of root veg worth, oooh, almost £2. More if you count it as organic. That's worth a year of guilt and days of weeding, isn't it? I heard they even sell them in Tescos these days...

      Those veg look lovely, far more appetising that supermarket ones I'll wager ;)

      Ha! Our gardener (ahem) cleared a bed for us today and handed us a big bag of carrots and beetroots. RESULT! x

      Love the muddiness. It's a very good thing your allotment even if it is a whole heap of work.

      lovely veg, even the mud looks good. I think an allotment is brilliant for children, I'm far too lazy though. I do love a good bit of digging though x

      I would love an allotment! But make do with a raised veg bed in the garden. Its hard work!

      Jap, you're welcome to the digging and the mud. I'll even let you take a parsnip or two home. It's great for the children... for about 10 mins, then they pour water over each other and start crying to go home because they're cold, wet and are scared of a centipede *rolls eyes*.

      Lol at the allotment guilt. I know of which you speak. My garden was so neglected this year.

      This is great! I'm very jealous, I'd love an allotment (although I'm not sure where I'd find the time to grow anything!)
