I’ve been itching to get to the allotment this month. The weather hasn’t been very helpful and I’ve been feeling a bit on the rough side with a very annoying cough. It’s thankfully clearing up now and I hope to get on the lottie this weekend even if it’s for a couple of hours.
Thursday was a particularly nice morning, bright blue skies and the birds were happily singing away. Camera in hand I popped out for a while. I need to get my January picture for our allotment calendar. I was on the hunt to find any colour I could find in winter. Everywhere is so muddy brown and green at the moment, I wasn’t hopeful… but I was very wrong… 😀I picked a few carrots for Daisy & Alvin while I was there… crunchy and earthy smelling 🙂 Delicious!
I’ve never tried chard before, it looks bright and cheery on the allotment, I think I might have a try at growing this.So pretty colourful all in all and I had a lovely walk around on my little mission. I haven’t chosen my picture for January yet. There are more pictures on facebook… 🙂 I’m going to be shovelling barrows full of poop for my strawberry bed on Sunday if the weather stays fine. Lovely!
