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!)

    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!
