My sisters and I are taking mum on holiday to Scotland tomorrow. She was born in Greenock and left at the age of 25 when she married Dad. She is 91 now. There's a 1932 photo of her standing outside a large house: my younger sister went on Google Earth and the house is still standing looking exactly the same. So we are off down memory lane for a few days.
In the meantime Andy will be left at home with a pile of wood which will miraculously transform into seven raised beds for my allotment. He'll deserve something better than a stick of rock when I get back.
He has already made a MASSIVE difference to the place. Here's what it looked like on Saturday:
AWFUL!! To make matters worse the new neighbours plot looks like this:
So challenge was on! I spent all day Sunday there and reclaimed ..... one bed!
Monday morning Andy turned up with the lawn mower and muscles and reclaimed the whole thing!
So a BIG thank you to Andy!!
Obviously I still have some digging to do!
Once he has put the new raised beds down I'm going to grown biennials this year instead of lots of veg. I think there's still time to plant a few spring onions, carrots and beetroot.
In the meantime does anyone know any good recipes for clover ??
