Welcome back to Reads Allotment Retreat. As you can see, we're bearing the brunt of the white stuff, and hence not venturing up to the plot until this lot clears. We did manage a brief outing to the plot on Wednesday this week, and were able to dig some Leeks as well as some Parsnips. I must add that both were delish, as well as a few small carrots that we managed to pull. Sadly there's been a lot of vandalism on the site recently, and a lot of plotholders sheds' have been broken into. My shed lock kept the buggers at bay, but they had a good go at the lock on my shed door, and the Hasp&Staple will need replacing. It really is soul destroying that this goes on, and short of posting Armed Guards, I cant see any ways of keeping the perpetrators at bay.

Anyhow, we hope you'll pop back soon for more updates from the plot.

Till then, take care and wrap up warm!

Happy New Year Everyone

Welcome back to Reads Allotment Retreat.

2010 is upon us, where did the last 12 months go ? Any ideas ??

We had a light covering of snow to welcome the new year in, and with frosts forecast for most of next week, it's hard to see when we might get to the plot!

However, wherever you are and whatever you do this year, we hope you have a fab time doing it. And we look forward to sharing our gardening exploits with you all. Keep us bookmarked - there's bound to be a break in the weather soon!
