Thinking it was going to be the better day of the weekend weather wise, we headed off to the plot yesterday morning, I’d like to tell you that we had a wonderful morning but truth to tell it was cold and squally. Even the greenhouse, normally cosy if there’s a bit of sun, was chilly. But of course this is the gardener’s lot in February.
I ran into the trading hut on route to drop off some carrier bags, which along with screw top wine bottles, they’d put a call out for. Trading secretary Alan was there dealing with the horticultural society membership renewals and site warden Bob was manning the scales, weighing out onions, shallots and seed potatoes. There was also a new batch of homemade marmalade and some local honey for sale.
On to the plot and Angela and Nigel from the community centre had just arrived with coffee and biscuits for everyone, they do this most Sunday mornings and we’re always pleased to see them. A welcome opportunity to catch up with all the news.
An hour or so of Derek working on the new cold frame whilst I washed plant pots, pulled up a few weeds and refilled the bird feeder, then time for lunch. That was our Sunday morning.
