I've just finished Elizabeth and Her German Garden. Beautiful book, recommended highly.
My first garlic clove has sprouted! I've actually grown something.
Spent a good couple of hours planting out some onions, doing a lot more heavy digging and weeding today. Also took some photos, so, without further ado, here's my allotment.
This is my apple tree. The bags underneath are full of weeds. The messy half of my plot can also be seen.
See, I've also done some digging. These are the four dug over beds, my mystery tree - we think it might be a plum - and a cleared bed.
And, finally, here's the view. It makes it all worth while, somehow.
You can't see the perfect plot next to mine.
