Allotment Adventures: Buying wood

Anyone else sick of the weather?

The weather wasn’t great last weekend and Ma had a trick knee, so we already knew not much was going to happen. We hit the plot and checked for damage, the bird feeders were casualties but other than that we’d survived storm Dennis and the crocuses are appearing.

After we re-filled the bird feeders, we went to Wickes to buy some wood. Sometimes, when we do stuff like this, Ma hires a car, this week we did it on the bus.

One of the great things about London is that no-one really blinks when you carry wood onto the bus! We did two round trips, bought 12 planks of wood and 3 posts for the corners and the screws. We need another pack of 5 planks but it was about to rain, it was windy and Ma was starting to hurt. So we called it a day.

I did want to show you the rogue potato plant that’s growing up in between one of the pallets that we use for storage!
