Tales form the Allotment

The Allotment
When Allotments were advertised in the Parrish Magazine we dedided to take one, mainly to get more exercise and lots of fresh friut and veg for the family.  At the begining of March we went to the site to view our new project, it was a cold and windy day and the rain was falling in stair-rods! Are we mad I asked Peter he nodded and said what is new!  The alotment size is 55 ft x 16 ft in imperial, which looked hughe on this dull grey day, two deer suddenly appeared from nowhere bounding across the field a beautiful sight but they looked mighty hungry to me.   Well we joined the local Horticutural Society and went to visit ‘The Shed’ for advice we were given a seed and plant catalogue from which we immeadialty over ordered, how are the two of us going to eat 75 sweet corn well that is assuming they all grow and we are not feeding the local population of wild life.
We have now planted 21 raspberrys canes, and nine fruit bushes consisting or black & Red currants and goosberrys.  I was chatting to the farm worker who was installing the water system, and asked him about the deer, he showed me the anti-deer fence he was installing it was about 4ft high, I asked him if they could jump higher than that ( I am sure Bambi did in the film) no he said with a knowing smile that will be ok but its the rabbits you need to worry about!  well more next month, take a look at the pictures.

    Hiya Susan, thanks so much for your comment!  Oh and no space is ever ‘not interesting’ as it tells so much about the individual!  Keep up the good work on here and I must say, it’s lovely to see people growing things!  Too many people don’t bother and it is such a shame.  Mind you, I struggle to keep houseplants alive yet alone anything else however my herbs are doing brilliantly!   Any hints and tips greatly appreciated ;o)  You will have to post a picture your kitty so I  can check out the resemblance to my little girl!

    hi susan sooooo nice to hear from you .So you daughter grows ‘tomatoes’interesting,very interesting.As for me, well i’m just your run of the mill,pill popping,sniffing,eye bulging drug crazed maniac but don’t let that put you off conversation?Honestly, i am joking.Got an interest in all things Pagan and the connection between hallucinogenic substances and ancient mans(womens)religious experiences hence why my space is akin to an illegal  pharmacists den.That’s not to say i never you know?Lovely hearing from you.Keep digging and ‘growing’.Pop over any time you want,usually have a kettle on ,so you can chill out,have a ‘smoke’play a few games if your bored and take a ‘trip’if you fancy going out.See your into yoga?Another interest of mine.Done Raj Yoga,Hatha Yoga ,Transcendental Meditation,dipped into Zen Buddhism and other various disiplines.Was on a God trip for years,you know, trying to find myself.Only one i really took to was Buddhism.As for now i can with all honesty say i am a Pagan and this is what i feel comfortable with and when i think of it probably always have.Om Shanti xxx
