Plot 52

June 18, 2012 at 4:07 pm 1 comment

With little time for blogging these days there’s even less time for reading other people’s blogs.  Plot 52 though is a split second read and one of my favourites. Spotting 5 unread posts in my reader this morning, and finding the above ”allotment recipe suggestion’‘ which made me laugh out loud, I thought it was high time I shared the delights of Greg’s illustrated allotment diary.  Greg describes his blog as ”a visual record of the triumphs and trials of a vegetable gardener.  Detailing the ongoing struggles with pests, the weather, low flying golf balls, and a fear of deep digging”.  

Last Summer when I took part in Suzy’s A-Z alphabet Greg also rose to the challenge producing a wonderful, humourous illustrated allotment alphabet, which has now been compiled into this lovely book. (click on link for details of how to get hold of a copy – a great gift for growers old and young!)

Entry filed under: A-Z challenge.

    Hi Nic, what a fabulous idea for a book, some of the things named in these alphabet books are certainly not in the everyday vocabulary of a child such as Xzylephone for X !
    You little boy is very interested in reading his book, he has gotten so big they are babies for only a very short time!

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
