Tiny shoots are pushing their way through
I noticed the first shoots this evening - broccoli and lettuce - so exciting! I never get over the feeling of wonder when a tiny seed turns into an edible plant!
There is a stream along one edge of the plots. It's not too far away but it's still quite a task filling can after can to water the plants (and I've nearly fallen in on more than one occasion). The dogs love it though and always go in for a paddle and a quick drink. This year on a date yet to be confirmed, the church are providing us with a water supply so that no one plot holder will have to walk more than 20 yards to get to a tap. We'll all be able to use hosepipes for the first time - there will probably be a ban this summer!
