moving on

I've got Col's garden ready to hand over, and now there is a small waiting list for plots, so the time to move on has come.

I needed to finish things we had started and planned together.

It was good to see The Carpenter helping too, planting out leeks and strengthening the polytunnel walls.

My garden has been ticking over well, now it can get back to normal. The Wizzard is here this weekend and he is helping with the new shed plans. He may not always be very practical but can be very useful and kind.

We have had more, needed, rain, but now we need some sun, for ourselves as much as the garden. I can hear the cars splashing along the road outside, so no digging today.

I was lucky to gather a small crop of Elderflowers previously and they are safe in the freezer. I can't touch the next lot until two good dry days have passed. I think Elderflower and Lime Cordial could be in the making soon.

The person who gets that plot will be very lucky indeed.

gz said... it is three plots.

He moved from one halfway along to the end one, took the next two as they fell vacant and no-one wanted them, as far as I know.
When I took my two six years ago there were five vacant I could choose from, plus others I wasn't offered, out of 37 plots
He gave most of the veg, fruit and flowers away. He did sell a little locally, away from the plot, but no-one begrudged him doing that.

Hope you are doing well as to be expected...p.s...white lilacs smell divine...I think the old varieties are much more fragrant.
