Saturday 15th April - Parsnips at Dawn

I had a lovely time in the sunshine yesterday planting spinach, radish, sprouts etc when an almighty row erupted a few plots down. Two plotholders were shouting and swearing at each other, I could hear one shouting, "Don't you threaten me!" I desperately wanted to film it on my camera for the Allotment 21 movie but thought they might attack me with a pitchfork.

One of the protagonists had a distinct Welsh accent and he should definitely be worried about threats. In Hereford it is legal to kill a Welshman in the Cathedral Close with a bow and arrow, so long as it's not on Sunday.

how do you this by-law, is it wise to let on, if i see in the news they are finding dead welsh-folks shot with arrows. . .

Your allotment looks very good.....neat and tidy and the soil looks good. I look forward to seeing pictures of the veg when they come up.
Was it really warm enough for bare arms today.....we've had rain and cold wind all day!
