The sun shone on me!

I thought it wasn't going to happen and I'd resigned myself to disappointment but no I was in luck!  The weekend was just right for me to have a first go at my allotment.  Saturday I spent measuring, looking, smiling and planning.  The photos show what a mess it's in but after getting some stuff down on paper I'm confident that it will all come together.  Sunday was such a beautiful day that I managed to build a second section for my compost heap and begin the clearing of 2 beds, which are now covered over with tarpaulin to try and dry and warm the ground ready for some digging.  Only slightly bothered by the fact that I 'borrowed' material from what are obviously overgrown and unused plots but I'm not sure what the etiquette as regards this is...do they have allotment police?

After all that strenous work I nipped off to the garden centre only to find they had a 50% sale on seeds, so I bought loads, + seed potatoes and onions, I can't wait until I can actually start planting stuff.

It really was a worthwhile and satisfying weekend, now I'm just looking forward to the next one so I can carry on in the same vein!
