Haven't had much time for crafting or blogging recently - the allotment has been a hot-bed of activity since Friday. After a few hiccups, with Mr R&B's Argos special drill not being up to the task - the base of the shed was finally completed. Saturday saw the walls and roof going on, with the felt and window being completed yesterday. I spent today painting the shed blue - everyone else has brown or green, but I've always got to be different to the rest!
I'm sure there'll be a few friendly mutters from the old-timers - but who cares?
I pointed out the other day that allotment holders are much like their plants - you don't see them all winter, then the first bit of sunshine and they're out, digging and planting for the coming year.
We got our overgrown plot at the end of February and in just a few weeks, it's starting to look like a proper allotment. We were quite lucky as the council got contractors in to clear a lot of the rubbish and turn the plots over, but we still have a way to go.
We plan to get the potatoes in shortly and then start planting out everything that's growing on at home. Our dining table looks like Kew Gardens at the moment!
