Operation Plot Taming

April 26, 2012 at 9:19 pm 6 comments

So it’s old news now but as planned my folks came over just before Easter and we went to work at the allotment. George took a saw to the hawthorn tree and Dad wrestled with the spiky branches.  
Mum and I were on weeding duties until E woke and needed attending to so I got off lightly really! What sterling workers 😮

    I’ve been laid up with a broken toe for the last four weeks, but I managed to sow some brassicas, plant some redcurrant bushes, prune the lemon verbena bushes and prune my Tradescantia houseplant before it happened!

    D has been sowing seeds for me (nasturtiums, marigolds, further brassicas) and showing me the progress (I may just have more capers than I bargained for this year!) but I miss getting my hands in the dirt.

      ouch, poor you. Goodness though, what feats you’d achieve if you were up and about judging by what you’ve managed hopping on one foot!
      Husbands are wonderful garden helpers but it’s not the same watching someone else do it (and G doesn’t always appreciate the ‘directing’ I offer sometimes!)

    Wow, looks like you’ve been hard at work! Very impressive…

      thank you, a great team effort :o) Sadly I suspect the weeds have grown back again by now!

    Many hands make light work …. it looks like you managed to uncover some fabulous soil. 🙂

    I hope you got G a power saw for Father’s Day. 😉

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife E found his playgroup Angel Gabriel costume and photo from 2 years ago and found it amusing how much his arms had grown!

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
