Week 26

3 Aug – 10 Aug 2008 Rain drops keep falling on my head…… this song has been spinning round the whole week synchronise with the weather, we have very humid wet days.  This affect most plants to puff up and the warm sunny spell in short appearance really did stimulate the growth too.  Besides busy at the plot, I have to whiz up a birthday roast for handy man, I would not miss the open ceremony of the Olympic Game too….. I shall glue in front the screen for my favourite sports for a while in the coming two weeks…. really where to find time to dig my plot…..

Week 22

7 July – 10 July 2008

A short week to dash around in the allotment as family call for a break to Cornwall the following week.  When it said a week, that means add a couple days to prepare (packing and lock up) before the away saga and a couple days after to reset (cleaning and ironing) back to routine…… what a bumper……somehow I do consider the allotment is my real holiday dent…..
