January 2 2006
A summer drink at the Abergavenny Food Fair and a chat about growing veg has somehow turned into Mel & I taking on allotment No 21 just before Christmas 2005. We will do most of the digging and planting while our Spouses are in charge of cooking the produce and constructing the shed.
January 2 was our first chance to get up there and start weeding. Using cardboard boxes for paths (a tip from Allotment Gardening by Susan Berger) we weeded and forked our way through the first bed.
