The veg for the pigs comes from Eva’s Organics (where I also get my veg box) on a Wednesday. All sorts of things get thrown their way from potatoes and peppers to melons and tomatoes. The only things they can’t eat are onions and citrus, both these would upset their stomachs.

A weed is merely a plant growing somewhere it shouldn’t. Today it seems everything is starting to grow where it shouldn’t. First the ground Elder that is rampant in the orchard is creeping into the veg patch and fruit cages, where it is certainly not welcome.

No, not a metaphor for my life (or if it is then that’s a story for another time), but unfortunately a fair description of my recent ‘leisure’ time. With daylight now extending past nine, I’ve spent several evenings in the last week ‘popping’ up to the allotment after the kids are in bed to try and catch up and get some more beds ready for the seedlings that should already be planted.

I received a short email the other day from our allotment site rep: “The recent site inspection raised concern about the amount of grass on your plot. Can you please do something about it in the next couple of weeks so as to avoid you getting an official warning”. Eeeeeek.
