Sowing & Sewing

Well I have to say I was a little buzzing sewing bee on Saturday after my first class 😀 I had a brilliant time.  I just love to learn new things.  We’re always learning on the allotment and now I’m learning to use my little sewing machine so I can make useful things I can…

Ho Ho No!

Back in August, me and Mr.B were pottering around our local garden centre and spotted CHRISTMAS POTATOES (charlottes) 😀 Very exciting moment, we’ve never had a go at growing them, so we thought this year we can add potatoes to our christmas dinner plate!
