Some allotment photos with our temporary bed of onions & garlic.

I have injured my back. This is mainly through too much digging on my allotment, obviously with the incorrect technique. It has also not been helped by the totally stressful situation at work.Won't go into that on here though...

Anyway, despite my bad back I knew that said allotment was in need of weeding so I popped up there this morning and, marvellously, remembered my camera.It is still not a garden of Eden at this stage, but I do have one tiny temporary bed, wherein nestle my onions and garlic.You can also see how much I have cleeared from the back boundary.

So, this may be a short post, but it is significant in the fact that you can see our first ( and I type the word optimistically here )   crops.

It must be so satisfying to see the progress you've made! Hope the Goddess Abundantia smiles upon you! Don't know who the goddess of bad backs is so you will have to settle for my best wishes in that department.

Hope your back is better soon. The work on your allotment is impressive indeed & I wish you a bountiful crop :) Spring here and we are tending to our strawberries, peas, herbs, sunflowers, marigolds, lettuce etc. So great seeing the children excited about growing our own food. Going to plant tomatoes soon - just waiting for the weather to tame a little more!
