Just when you thought it was safe........


If there's one phrase I hate more of Keith's than "I've been thinking...." it's " 'ere, come and have a look at this...". It heralds a fait accompli. And so it was this morning.

Sitting here at the computer, minding my own business and not hurting anyone, I became increasingly aware of the sound of sawing and general clattering and banging and I thought " 'Ey up". Sure enough it wasn't long before I was unceremoniously whipped away from my Sunday morning musings to go and see..............
The Allotment! I did wonder who he'd buried at first!

Beans and Spuds have taken up residence

The best allotments have a Wild Bit. This is IT!

And THIS bit is where the bins will go!

That's what he said anyway, about the bins. His 'Allotment' is actually the compound he made for the bins to live in so they are not an eyesore or a nasty blot on the landscape.

Oh well, c'est la vie. At least it didn't cost anything.

Looks like everything is coming right along Angie!! We have lots planted in tubs here so that the rabbits can't eat it. Don't you just love fresh veg!! (Especially when someone else does all the weeding! tee hee) Todd is our resident gardener. I just cook the stuff! XXOO

I love the idea of using a small space so well. I'll be looking forward to seeing how well things grow in bins like that. It's a clever idea.

oooh...I love gardening and that is so cleverly done. You do so well with your photos, hope we get to watch the progress of this nifty garden!
