Bit cold and overcast today but made a thermos and headed off to the allotment. A friend gave me some old raised bed frames the other day and I had fun today preparing their spots. Three down and one to go, cabbages already planted in the first! The bright spot of today was a robin following me about to pick up the worms my digging had exposed. He was really brave and didn't seem phased by me (or the dogs) at all. I guess he must have been hungry.

Planted round cabbage, 2 marrow plants half a dozen strawberry plants and an olive tree (hoping I'll still be alive to sit under it's shade!). Tomorrow is reserved for a quick trip to the garden centre and then digging a border for some flowers.

I wish I was doing this in my own garden :(
