>Allotment 1: the application

>Emailed parish council to be added to waiting list for an allotment. Happy to have half plot to start with. This should solve space and dog problems at home. Wonder how long the list is.

>Veg patch

>Now I am confident the dog cannot get into the veg patch I have started the planting. The old sand table is now a salad grow bar, potatoes are in bags and tomatoes under cover. Garlic was planted in Nov last yr and apart from puppy nibble. Is doing well. Frosts still threatened so covers at the ready. Fingers crossed that we get some warmth again soon.
