Although it has been raining pretty much all week I have managed to snatch a few moments to carry on tidying and clearing the summers’ accumulated detritus. Empty pots stacked, supporting canes pulled out and stored, tomato plants removed and composted. Things are beginning to look a little more shipshape in the veg plot.
Now I can get down to planning for next year and how I can fit everything in to make full use of the space that I have.
It isn’t going to be easy, now that I don’t have my allotment I won’t be able to grow as much as I did, and maybe not as much variety.
But I am going to give it a darn good try, using as much ingenuity as I can muster.
I am inspired by Jono at Real Men Sow who is in, more or less, the same situation as me and he seems pretty chipper about it. I have to think positive – I have been growing veg, one way or another, for most of my adult life – this is just another challenge. I couldn’t contemplate not growing my own food, for me it is unthinkable.
Sorry about the quality of the photographs but the weather outside is dire at the moment and I have had to use heavy editing to get even these poor pictures. So onwards and upwards, as they say; as Flighty mentions in a recent post – it is time to start looking through seed catalogues, checking what I already have and what is needed – and you know what, it isn’t going to be as bad as I feared.
