Make the children work on Sundays

It is probably best not to listen to the weather forecasts too closely, rain they said. At 10am it was bright and sunny so we took a chance and went to the allotment. We managed a couple of hours graft while the baby slept. There was a light sprinkle of rain before we left thats all!
We managed to mulch the paths around the rasberries with bark chippings.
Whilst we dug Owen learnt to rake the recently turned earth he made a reasonably good job of it too.
It was a landmark day for us, we planted our first seeds direct into the ground. Salad leaves, spring onions and radishes yum - lets hope they grow quickly if only to keep a five year old interested in continuing to work on the plot.
This evening as part of some craft style fun we have made the head for our scarecrow, watch this space to see him in pride of place!
