A robin came to visit while we were digging. A bit more work done in the allotment. We managed to fix the rotavator. It had a damaged fuel tank so we took the tank off an old petrol generator and bodged it onto the rotavator.
Paddy and Minnie rotavating 🙂
Now the ground is ready to plant into, its Time to plant some potato’s.
First lot of early potato’s
Bought some aloe vera plants for the greenhouse, only £1.50 each, bargain.

Its been a long winter this year in the UK. We are still not out of the woods, still getting the odd ground frost but its time to get things going as the allotment is looking a bit of a mess.
I decided to buy a new polytunnel to get seeds and cuttings started.
1st job to do was to dig and level the ground and lay some membrane to keep the weeds at bay. My arthritis means i struggle with the digging so thanks to @pedrosgali, @shammyshiggs, Diz, Spike and Max for the help.
Polytunnel looks pretty good and does the job. Time to get planting. 🙂
