Let me introduce you to my new toy, I assembled it today. It is very basic and was very cheap. I also think it has a real retro vibe. Yes it is the colour green but it is also environmentally green requiring only my power not petrol. Now my paths should be up to the scrutiny of the allotment patrol. It would be a little easier to use if the paths were less undulating.
Just as I had finally worked out how to assemble the mower and as I began to run it over the path there was a rumbling of a petrol mower behind me. The main path was being cut and low and behold a voice said if you move the box I'll do the path for you. Wow the first bit of lotty help I've had and something that they are not supposed to do. My only guilt came with considering telling John that I had done it. There was fun in knowing that he could never use the mower and achieve such excellent results can you imagine the frustration that would bring! I resisted.
I've sown some climbing beans today 'jack edwards' but I can see that people have already planted their bean plants out on the site - I am truly running behind.
