I did think about doing a last year, this year post but all I want to say about last year is that I generally think that it was a good plotting one and so by association also a good blogging one.
This time of year is one of anticipation for allotmenteers as this month onion sets and seed potatoes become available, and having browsed the various catalogues we’ll have hopefully also decided what seeds to buy.
The ground is far too cold, and in my case waterlogged, to do any plotting and it’ll probably be at late February before it becomes workable again.
I took a walk on Boxing Day and was lucky enough to get a really good look at a grey heron standing motionless on the edge of the decking alongside the ecology park pond. On my way back through the allotments I reflected on the fact that it may all look rather bleak and neglected now but come March, with hopefully some decent weather, it’ll soon all start to spring to life again.
I would normally be leaving for the trading hut about now but it’s closed, as it was last week, which has just added to my confusion about what day it is that I’ve been experiencing all over the festive period. Thank goodness that it’s all back to normal next week!
Mrs K said in her comment on my last post Yippee to 2010! which I certainly second, especially with regard to pondering, pottering (or puttering) and plotting on the allotment.
I want to thank everyone who visits Flighty’s plot, especially those of you who also comment, and I hope that you’ll continue to do so!
