What A Difference A Year Makes

When we took on our allotment last May we were a little overwhelmed by the prospect and at a loss as to how we were ever going to turn this weed plot into a veg patch, but just look at us now!
Weeds and brambles (well most of them) gone, water collection gate finished, compost bins constructed and beds planted up with rhubarb, onions, garlic, peas, beans, asparagus, perennial spinach and early 'tatoes and, to top it all, a gloriously sunny Saturday morning - does life get any better?
Tomorrow we finally start taking up the ground cover and laying the path, which consists of weed membrane and wood chips edged by upturned wine and bear bottles - oh the sacrifices we've made for this allotment - extra drinking, skip hopping - if I had any shame at all I'd be embarrassed!
Considering how far we've come the list of jobs still undone is frustratingly long - oh well, there's always next weekend.

    Seriously though - it's good to compare the photos. It actually looks like we've done something with our time!!
