Investing for the future

Yesterday the weather was so glorious that even though I was totally snowed under with work, I allowed myself to have a very leisurely lunch break (more than two hours!) so I could sit outside and get on with more sowing. I’ve obviously been inspired by my insomniac night activities. I now have pots of […]

A warm Irish welcome

Our allotment lies neglected once more while we enjoy the sunshine here in County Waterford with my Mum. I have to say, I don’t feel remotely guilty.

Birmingham allotment holders take action

It can be no coincidence that as soon as I decide to step down from political office, a local allotment association gets all radical – in a really good way. This story, about Billesley Lane Allotments (just around the corner from us lot over at Warstock Lane) details how they have put in a planning […]
