Bitten by the allotment bug
Two Saturday afternoons in a row on the allotment and I'm addicted. Our allotment was always my partner's territory and I've resisted taking on another commitment apart from the the odd bit of humping and dumping of manure or whatever. But she's pregnant, so I was talked into doing some digging and I've had a Damascene conversion.
As well as the low carbon/impact fruit and veg we get from our plot, there are many other benefits:
1. Exercise in the fresh air
2. Peace to listen to some sport on the radio
3. Birds, bees & butterflies
Let's see how long it lasts!
