I have finally planted something in the allotment. Garlic. Beautiful Purple Wight things. I’ve planted two bulbs and I’ve got two more to put in the ground. I might put a few cloves in pots actually, running out of money just before Christmas is not a good idea and I still have presents to buy. Surely what everyone will want is a pot and some compost with a bit of garlic in it?
It’s got me itching to do more on the plot now. Is it too late to sow broad beans these days? Or shall I wait till February? I finally found my packet of seeds, underneath my bed. I’m hoping to get some gardening vouchers for Christmas, there’s a whole lot of compost to get. And a rake, a decent pen knife, other things…
I’m thinking about what to do with the messy bit at the bottom of my plot. As it’s a half plot, it backs onto another half plot. 85% of my plot was rotavated, which means that the remaining 15% isn’t (don’t ask why, I’ve no idea, this was all done before I signed up) which means that it looks remarkably like the other half plot. I’m concerned that Shiraz, the girl who has the other half, will steal it thinking that it’s hers. To be quite honest, at this stage I can’t be arsed to have more land, but I’m sure my opinion will be changed come the summer. So what do I do? It’s completely grown over. There’s a temptation to put a green house up there, but I also had the idea this morning that what I might do is leave it as it is and maybe just add some flower seed to attract birds and stuff. Maybe get a seat too. I know I could just dig it all over, but that seems like a whole lot of work I can’t be arsed to do. God, I’m lazy.
