The only colour on the plot now are the strawberry leaves.
On the occasional sunny days I’m still digging out, and sieving, a wheelbarrow load of compost from one of the nearby communal wood chip bays. I’m now heaping it next to the blackberry bush to use in the spring rather than spreading it over the vegetable patches now.
Last Sunday morning was the horticultural society’s Christmas party held at the trading shed with free food and drink, and a raffle. There was a good crowd there and it was an enjoyable couple of hours, but I didn’t win anything in the raffle. It nice to see Bonnie, a lovely Battersea Dogs Home rescue dog, who I shared a couple of biscuits with.
Who needs a Christmas tree when you can have a tomato plant!
At home the Tiny Tim has two tiny fruit on it. There’s a red one ready to eat and a still green one right at the top of the plant which I’m hoping will be ripe by Christmas Day. Note the little felt robin decoration!
I’ll be doing a post on Sunday and the one after that probably won’t be until Thursday 29th.
Have a good weekend!
