The allotment is coming along quite well. And so are the muscle aches and pains, mine due to raking and Jilly's after a fight with a tree!
For now, the hedges and trees are cleared and our next task is to fully clear the ground in preparation for digging in some beds.
We've plenty of nature for neighbours- a very friendly robin, squirrels and even a kestrel. However, we also have a human neighbour who is discussing using chemicals on his plot and as it is above ours will not help us in our quest for organic growing!
