The grey weather continued and again I found an empty site when I arrived. Making the most of my time I set about cleaning one of the sheds. It’s surprising how quickly they can become full and need a broom swept around them.
|Having a think about the prospect of sowing some crops before Christmas|
I walked around the allotment, visualising how it will look next Summer. Taking out the measuring tape I worked out the width of the path between the beds, 2ft I’m thinking. At the moment I’m not sure what material the path will be constructed of, but I know that I don’t want grass.
While cleaning the shed I found a few packets of Shallots, Onions and Broad Bean seeds. If the weather is on my side next weekend I could peel back a few feet of the plastic in Bed 3 and maybe plant a row of Shallots, Onions and Broad Beans.
There was no point staying too long, it was cold and thinking can also be done at home by the warmth of the fire with a mug of tea in hand, so I headed for the gate as the light faded with a headful of ideas.
