    One of my new year’s resolutions was to dig the last of the carpet out of my allotment. Discovered today that some of it has been used in combination with a metal bedstead and metal stakes to form a kind of retaining wall, so taking it out will probably cause the slope bit (and the terraced beds I put in) to collapse...

    Good job I started the year with multiple resolutions, so I still have a few spares!

    I missed the last night of The Gardeners Rest and I had a very special dress for the occasion.
