It doesn't look like I will be going to the allotment for a while and running out doors looks and feels positively treacherous!
It looks like walking with Dylan, who loves biting the snow, and the gym is now the agenda for a while.

Tuesday I lifted the beetroot and carrots. It amounted to about 50 pounds of beetroot and about 70 pounds of carrots. Both taste great and I am a true lover of beetroot - but this may prove a little too much this year! We have also been eating carrots in most every known way but, as yet, we are maintaining a healthy skin pigment!
But today it has snowed for the first time this year and that may mean less done for a little while.

The previous occupant of our plot quit the allotment rather abruptly and left a lot of things behind. We haven't identified everything yet but are trying to 'tidy up'.
I have started by moving some of the blue plastic out of site and gathering up the bags with compost that have been left sitting around and consolidating them into the compost heaps at the back. I have also been clearing brambles from along the back fence and consigning them to the council bin as they don't compost at all well.
Amongst the things left on the allotment is a poly-tunnel which has 3 young vines in. We are still deciding whether this stays or goes.
After that I have been clearing some of the surface weeds and seeing what lurks below..
So I brought a little home with me while we decide how to store the carrots and beetroot.
On top of all this there are currant bushes as well, but I missed out on photos of them!
