A Fruitful Day

Hi folks,

We've finally managed to get back on to the allotment today after all that snow, so thankfully it was a beautiful sunny day. We've had a very productive day with lots of digging out of weeds and roots (as demonstrated by me in the photo below).

We also marked out a bed for potatoes and one for fruit, the latter as a result of some neighbours offering us some strawberry plants. We also have some fruit bushes which we plan to plant in this bed aswell.

We had the opportunity to try out my new trangia stove today, which my dad sent me for my birthday. We heated soup on it for lunch and it worked fantastically!

Let it Snow!!

Well it's been heavy snow showers here in Sheffield for most of the day and the dogs and kids have had lots of fun! Here's a few pics from today.
