The allotment is testing us at the moment! The weeds are coming through at an unbelievable pace and I have a growing list of urgent jobs - canes for the tomatoes, cucumbers and peas, plant more peas and beetroot, earth up the potatoes and recover the rhubarb from the weeds. I am sure there is more to add to that. I have even been going on my own a couple of evenings a week but it still doesn't seem enough. I am sure later years will be easier as Harry and Peter become more useful and I can be more productive when we visit together. I just hope we do actually get to harvest some produce this year to make it worthwhile!
