Snow on the plot!

Well it's been colder than a penguin's privates this past week and allotment activity has ranged from zero to zilch! Not a lot you can do when everything is frozen. That includes Roath Lake and Caerphilly Castle's moat which was a sheet of white this morning after a light dusting overnight. Very pretty but the swans and ducks don't look amused!

Dave has taken a little trip around Cardiff recently and posted this photo online with the allotment behind him. It's a very white plot! Poor Worzel Scummage the scarecrow is sinking in the soil!

More allotments coming to Cardiff!

It looks like the demand for allotments has become so intense that Cardiff Council have decided to expand!
Not quite sure how all of this is going to work in each area but for anyone looking for a plot in Cardiff then I hope this link will shed a little light on the situation. ("shed!" hehe!! oh dear!)

Autumn Clearing

After a week of endless rain we managed to grab one dry-ish day to finally get rid of all the old rotted wood, brambles, dried grass and weeds by having a bonfire. It was much needed after clearing up all the rubbish at the back of the plot so that we could get a rotavator in.

We made a day of it and had a BBQ as well. Once the fire got going we drank tea, ate burgers and got dripped on by the occasional rain cloud that drifted by. Very muddy but also fun.

Once the fire had died down we roasted marsh mallows off the embers. Lovely!
