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…..

Highlights of this week

Here are some of the highlights of this week……

I have tried weedling most of the time in this week but I do bet they will shoot back up while I am away…….
