Stocking up

Last week was another non-gardening week. It was cold - very cold - and we also had some fog at the weekend. We couldn't keep the bird-bath ice-free but fortunately, the birds could drink from and bathe in the pond.

First allotment visit of 2023


Firstly apologies if this post ends up flaky. I'm working on a new laptop. I'm used to working on a desktop computer with a mouse and where I am used to where all the keys are.

I'll probably buy a mouse later but haven't got around to that yet.

Anyway onwards. The weather was miserable again last week. when it wasn't raining, we were treated to strong, bitingly, cold winds. We managed a few shorter walks with Ruby but didn't risk Nostell, as if the rain had started we would have had quite a trek back to the shelter of the car.

We made one visit - our first of the year - to the allotment. Had it not been necessary to harvest some vegetables,  we probably wouldn't have ventured out. As it was we didn't stay long.

A two birthday week
