I'm rubbish

Dragged Best Friend up to plot today ("Come for a day in Cambridge! We'll do lovely outdoors things. The Backs? Well, the back of somewhere.") I'm rubbish. My garlic and onions have bolted, slugs are devouring the runner beans, accidentally planted dwarf beans around my bean pole pyramid, so will now have to replace them, and my lawn is four foot tall.

On the upside, fed Best Friend raspberries, strawberries, raw peas, raw broad beans, redcurrants, blackcurrants and gooseberries. Then went to see my friends' plot, which is what mine should have looked like, and discovered a public cherry tree that we foraged from (looked like monkeys). So I may be rubbish, but BF thinks I'm great.

Hi, I found your blog whilst browing for other allotment gardening/self-sufficiency blogs. I enjoyed reading your entries (although you haven't updated for a little while - the crappy weather getting you down, huh?) and I especially liked your blog's name. I have added you to my links at

If you'd like to link back to me that would be great, but of course it is entirely up to you.
