My ever increasing kingdom...

Well, maybe I've bitten off more than I can chew, but I've just got myself an allotment. Well, a half plot.

It is, apparently, a trendy thing to do now, but I've always had a bit of a hankering. It must have been watching 'The Good Life' when I was young & impressionable. Hubby is pleased - it will mean the end of me trying to use red cabbages and cauliflowers as edging plants in the herbaceous borders.

So, I can't wait to get the piece of paper to sign, and go and take control of my little plot of wilderness. We'll see how well the enthusiasm lasts when waging war against bindweed and brambles.
