Foggy Day

I have put my potatoes out on the window ledge for chitting. There are a few shoots appearing already. They are in the porch where it is light but not too hot.

A foggy day at the allotment meant that no-one else was daft enough to be there. The rain over night made the ground really easy to dig so I got lots of work done, we have even got a few paths now.

We have got some wood from an old palette we are going to use to make some beds with. There could be a few more digging in dreary days before things are ready for Spring. I have ordered some Asparagus crowns so I want things sorted before they arrive in March. When we took it over we were told there was no couch grass in there, just a few weeds. This has turned out to be false. Couch grass everwhere but the wet soil just doesn't give it anything to cling onto. So bye bye couch grass I shall return to kill the rest of your friends another day.


  1. Is that Michael Jackson creeping about in the fog?

    Nice to have found your blog through mutual "Plot too Far".

    Looking forward to seeing your new plot come into its own this year

  2. Yikes. That's enough to put anyone off ever going digging in the fog again!

    Thanks for the comment.

  3. Great pic, really like it :)
