So to be gardening in freezing weather in scrub land means that I can now name myself as a visionary!
I managed to clear a small area and made what will become a strawberry bed, and Mr.PB has knocked up a compost bin. So a major part of my free time this year will be devoted to extending our growing season.
I have been totally inspired this great book, down to earth funny tales of trying to bypass Mr Tesco and get your kids involved. I am totally hooked, Mr.PB is a little worried that I am becoming obsessional about Paul.
Just spending a little time at the allotment really filled me with enthusiasm and excitement, just the day before I was feeling so tired and fed up with the weather and lack of time. Just shows you that simple things in life can really give you a lift So made little eccles cakes, so so yummy, and quick, I think they will become a family favourite in no time.
Feeling a little smug, as I have managed to keep in touch with the homemaker self that has been missing a little recently. I intend a curl up on the sofa with the allotment chef, a warm fire and our new wall art.
