All good things........

The weathers started to cheer up, the birds are singing (and starting to use our nestbox) and its lovley jubly!!!!!!It's allways this time of year that I start looking around for bits and bobs that can be used for the lottie.I've allready asked the ladys at work to let me know if anyone has any old windows or doors as we're trying to build a coldframe. Im also asking them to save me all thier loo rolls so i can plant my sweet peas and more runner beans...ive never been so pleased to finish a loo roll more!!!!! (sad, me?)
I love this time of year, when you can plan what your going to sow , where youre going to put it, what you want to build, what youre going to take to eat and all the people youre going to chat to.Well the greenhouse is now chock-a-block full of veggies just waiting to get planted out and they need to go out soon so i have room for my flowers too!We have dug that much allready that my legs are aching non stop, and its took a fair few weeks to get back into the swing of things, i must have gotten sooo unfit over the winter!The broad beans have gone in and so have the first earlies (arran pilot) and now im just finding time to finish digging the beds over to sow all the rest of the stuff.
The second plot we have took on is proving to be a challenge, but we are getting there. we have dug three beds out so far, although I think we have made them too narrow so we shall have to join the two togehter when we have more time...what a joke hahahahaha!!!

Your plot looks like a highly organised, well maintained allotment. I am truly jealous!
