Champagne and onions

We wizzed up to the plot on Sunday for a quick half hour session and we ended up being there for about three hours instead!

I had decided to take the Japanese (over wintering) onion sets to put into the plot, I managed to get them in plus one row of garlic before Sue and Will, our plot neighbours, arrived. They really are fantastic people, always offering help and advice and on Sunday as a sort of toast to the end of the growing year and to challenge us to more and better next year they had brought a bottle of bubbly to share with us!!! Will called us over to be presented with a paper cup each of bubbly, it was one of the most surreal things to be stood on an allotment site toasting each others good health etc with champagne. Who said allotments is old men and flat caps!

So after our liquid refreshment it was back to digging some of the beds over in preparation for spring cabbages and manuring, I still haven't made my trip to the stables yet to collect some muck, something to look forward to!
