Commitments have not allowed me to go up to the allotment until today. It was pouring down all day yesterday so we weren't sure whether we'd be able to plant our potatoes today. Was it going to be too wet? Well, if you don't try you won't know. Mrs. G. and I met up at 10 o'clock in the windy but sunny morning. Boy was it nippy! We had already dug over two beds but soon realised that we needed another bed as we had three types of potatoes. Hey ho, let's dig. The soil was wet but workable so it didn't take us very long to weed and dig. Soon enough we had three beds with potatoes buried in three rows per bed.

After only a couple of hours the allotment wasn't looking too bad. I doubt whether the plot police will have a go at us.
Neither of us will be able to do any more work this week but roll on next week - time to sort the rest out!
