The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Allotment 1

Well today we did it ...

Arranged to rent an allotment from Manchester Council - £32 per year for a half plot of 150 sq. metres

For those that do not know what an allotment is  - it is a tract of ground on which you plant vegetables and fruit - normally you rent these from your local council.

This plot is not too bad but it does need a lot of work- digging and removal of some small amounts of rubbish and the building of a decent pathway.

I hope to have some photographs and progress reports in due time.

Here's to an abundance of fresh food !!!!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
