Just haven't got around to it…

I haven't written anything for ages but I'm feeling the urge to just write so what better place to do it?

I've been meaning to update on  my allotment for ages I've even got photos but I just haven't got around to it.  So without the visuals here's the potatoes are coming on a treat although I was told yesterday that if it doesn't rain then the actual potato won't swell :( my onions are very handsome and they're all standing up in a nice row, although apparently they won't be ready to eat for ages and I've got to let them dry and everything :(  My pak choi looks great as does my purple sprouting brocoli and pointed red cabbage :) however I did move some carrots and leeks from my greenhouse the other day and they look decidely sorry for themselves now despite my watering them and talking to them :(  WE NEED RAIN!!! 

My friend T came up trumps again though, he's given my a scythe so I can cut back all the nettles and long grass that's growing around the edge of my plot.  I had a go on Monday and I don't think my technique is up to scratch as I ended up with a scythe injury - lucky just a blister as opposed to a toe amputation!!

Archery has also taken a dive.  After changing to HPs limbs (that conjurs up amusing pictures..) my arrows no longer suit my bow and they have enabled me to miss the target more times than hit it, no honestly, it must be the arrows, a good archer will always blame the bow it can't be their release technique or the fact their mouth is hanging open in a fish-like manner, or their head resembles a nodding dog, or their shoulders mimic an old crone - none of these things are possible it is just the arrows!!  Anyway I've gone and bought some new ones which will make me a champion before the end of the year!  At this point it is worth noting that HP has acheived a significant personal ambition of becoming Archer of the Month and I'm very proud of him and I know he can't wait for his shiny badge - he's like a little magpie :)

Work is good, things are hotting up on the R front and it's exciting stuff I just want it get going so we can see what the end result will be like!

Anyway pictures will follow of the allotment and archery hopefully (if I can hit the target!)
