A few weeks ago we spent a freezing cold Saturday putting up my dad’s new shed on the allotment. It’s still a work in progress, but it’s starting to feel very homely inside! We’ve got lots of plans for it and Dad even wants to paint a mural on the back in the autumn.
Grandpa gave Tabitha this insect house for her birthday and today we hung it up on low branch so that she will be able to peep inside.
We also hung up her nesting materials for the birds.
We worked hard digging one plot while Dad rotivated the other. It won’t be long before we can start planting. I think Tabitha needs a smaller fork though! (Which reminds me, if anyone has any Sainsbury’s Active Kids vouchers that they don’t need, we would be really grateful for them. I’m registered to use them as a childminder and hopefully we will be able to collect enough for a set of children’s gardening tools, as well as other resources.)
It was lovely to sit on the decking in the sunshine and enjoy a picnic lunch. I’m looking forward to lots of long summer days spent at the allotment!
A lady from another allotment brought a visitor across to see the children.
It seemed huge compared to our tiny froglets!
