lost things

I didn't manage to cut a new 'home for pins' last night, as I spent all of it hunting for my summer clothes. I found some instantly, and all of Hollys, but there were three dresses that I simply could not find. I spent three hours between our bedroom and the loft and could not find them. And there are only so many places to look! I am quite organised and clothes are only really in one of three places, so I was very frustrated and gave up and went to bed not happy! Then I woke up this morning thinking 'I wonder', went back in the loft and found them in two seconds flat. AAAHHH. They were in a bag I had dismissed as full of Hollys bedding. At least I found them I suppose! Today I thought I would show you some snaps of our allotment, Stuart does most of the hard work and we have lots growing at the moment. The polytunnel is new this year after we lost all our tomatoes last year, we spent a 'fun' sunday in the rain putting that up. The first two shots are taken standing in the middle of the allotment on the edge, one picture looking each way. It is quite a big plot! And the last one is of our shallots coming along. This is our third year with the allotment and the best thing is going up there with Holly and picking what is ready, this week we will be eating lots of spinach and sorrel! I'll show you some other things we have growing tomorrow. : )

How fabulous! I love the view of all the fresh greens! I'm sure you'll love this throughout the summer! I'm so in the mood for a summer tomatoe!

Wow, this is so impressive! How wonderful! Shallots are probably my favorite of the onion family.

I would love to have a garden. I just can't get the hang of vegie growing in Arizona...it just doesn't work as well as it did in Ohio.

Love the idea of these allotments. My allotment is just in my back yard. Do you not have back yards??

Your garden looks wonderful - I would love to have something like that at my house, even just tomatoes! When I was reading about your search for your dresses I couldn't help laugh - How many times has that happened to me?! It's almost like being too organized - it outsmarts us sometimes!
