April Fools day today. Not many jokes being played. Anyway … after a couple of run ins with plot holders who don’t respect the distancing rules flying about, one of us made a sign that went up in the green house a few days ago. Needless to say when we arrived yesterday certain plot holders fell silent. Hmmm. We were about as popular as a fart in an astronaut’s suit! Someone said, loud enough for us to hear,
‘I see the corona-virus paranoia is spreading …’
Certain allotmenters think they have the right to just walk into you green house or allow their dogs or kids to run around your plot. It’s a pain in the backside without the social distancing, now it’s a definite ‘NO’!
Mini rant over. The plum tree has just blossomed, it felt like overnight. we should have pruned it in the Autumn but never got around to it. It’s huge now, let’s hope it produces loads of fruit.
We planted up the last of the flower seeds for this year. Some Ammi ‘Visnaga’ and Ammi ‘Majus’ – both were purchased from Higgledy Garden. We’ve bought seeds from them before and they’ve always been great. We also planted some Anagallis – a beautiful blue flower, that should be more popular than what they are.
We hope you are all OK. Hopefully the weather should begin to get a bit warmer and the days longer. Happy Plotting.
