Half-Baked Blog - The Allotment

Getting to grips, or losing my grip, on a Midlands allotment.

21st January 2020 - New Year, New... oh wait, still the same.

Happy New Year, one and all. I've actually been fairly busy in the allotment over the last couple of weeks, but I've been keeping it quiet and am going to make a few seperate posts about, rather than lumping it all in as one. If you want a teaser, I can tell you this much; I got some grit stuck in my eye, decimated some weeds, realised my rhubarb isn't dead, worked on my compost heaps and finally learned how to use a hoe at the grand old age of 29.

Anyway, here's to an exciting year of actually eating home-grown foods, rather than just clearing overgrowth in the allotment. M and I have been to Wilkinsons and spent a whole £8 (I feel this to be a lot of money) on seeds, getting excited for our year ahead of eating, learning and failing. And lucky you; you'll get to read about it here.

I will follow with some actual content in the next few days. You'll all be pleased to know I've started using a digital camera instead of my constantly-blurry phone, so there may even be some decent images!

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the posts from 2019. Here's hoping for an exciting 2020.
