Died and gone to seed and sundry heaven

Had a reluctant weekend off from the lottie whilst visiting the parents for my dads birthday.  Ventured out in gloomy damp day of sunday afternoon with the folks for a drive to a little chain garden centre out in sticks of  Upminster, Essex. To find they had a 50% sale on all seeds and lots of other bits and bobs , oooh I was like a kid in sweet shop.  Managed to get most of the seeds on my wish list for this years grandplans including, sweetcorn, bright lights chard (tried rainbow last year which turned out to be distinctly un-rainbow like.), beetroot  moulin rogue, celariac, romanesque broccoli, a nantes carrot and a big roll of weed matt to continue the path saga battling with the couch grass.  Also bagseyd a lovely big tub of organic chick poop!

Seeds galore!

For me it’s all about the simple things in life. Pottering around my allotment, growing things indoors and out, baking a good cake, being outside, pretty things, vintage finds and a good pot of tea. It’s all the small things that make me tick, noticing the beauty in everyday things. Although this blog initially was intended to be a blog about all these things its evolved into being basically a blog about our allotment. Our adventures, highs and lows, wins and loses. So join me & Mr Wilson as we learn from our mistakes and successes down plot 18a.
