Chips with everything

The raised beds have not yet materialised but we have had a delivery of wood-chips to the allotment site. I have taken some for the path between my plot and Tony's plot, my neighbour to the North. Each plot-holder is responsible for the path to the North side of their plot.

For my wedding anniversary last year my wife sent me out to the garage to see the present she had parked in there for me. It was a fabulous two-wheeler in British racing green. Today seemed like a perfect day to get it out of the garage for the first time and to take it for a spin up to the allotments. If you look carefully you might catch a glimpse of it in a couple of the photos below.


  1. Like the wheels, Phil. That's some woman!

  2. Great wheelbarrow. I use an old rusty, rickety thing which was left on our allotment when we took it over. I wish I could get my hands on some wood chips, it makes the paths look so much neater.
