We're still here!!
Leo and I have been clearing up and saying goodbye to my allotment patch, but sadly after 35 years on this site I am moving on. But I have come up with an exciting plan! Matron is moving her patch to a new and exciting venture. Matron Lives! More details in the next few days.
I have been lovingly tending this soil and adding organic matter for 35 years so I have decided to bring some of the garden with me - a garden transplant!
This is gorgeous soil, and whilst repairing a broken raised bed there was about a ton of soil to distribute and tidy up before the new tenants come in next week.
So I am bagging up some of the soil, complete with all the wiggly worms, into some strong rubble bags and bringing it to my new garden. I will be revealing my new project in the next couple of days. I just cannot bear to think what it would be like without growing my own veggies. Tending a plot and getting your hands dirty in the soil is one of my greatest pleasures - second only to eating what I grow!
So, I'm emptying the greenhouse and starting afresh on another new adventure. Only 6 days to go now!
