We made the decision to go to the allotment yesterday rather than leave it until today. What a great decision that turned out to be - given that it has been pouring with rain ever since we got up this morning.
It felt really good to get out and muddy, the birds were singing and snow drops and crocuses have finally forced their way through.
Our little mad cat Gladys certainly had the spring in her tail yesterday and was running about in a crazy fashion all day.
Nigel put together a new bed and I got two of the other beds thoroughly dug over - and even managed to plant a couple of rows of spinach! The bindweed roots were lurking ferociously but I got an entire waste bag full dug out. There is a load of sand on top of the new bed because this is where we put the soil from the pond hole. It needs a hefty amount of compost digging in.
I was intending to take a load down there today to get it worked in, but that is going to have to wait until the weather improves slightly.
