Having Fun in The Wind and The Rain – 2006

Although we have made almost daily visits to the plot there has been nothing worth writing about until today. Our fruit plants finally arrived from Ken Muir on Monday. We had fitted netting over the top of the fruit cage on Sunday so typically the plants arrived the day after. Rob did a fine impression of Quasimodo this afternoon in order to plant the two minarettes, two gooseberry bushes and twelve free strawberry plants in the fruit cage. The two Rhubarb plants had to be put into a pot in the cold greenhouse ready to be planted out in the Spring. The weather was very wet and the wind was whistling accross the allotments but we managed to enjoy ourselves nevertheless. Exciting moment of the day – We spotted two little green seedling in the Sweet Pea pots in the greenhouse.
