It’s that time of year again and hasn’t it just come around so quickly? I do love Christmas time though, the traditions, the songs on the radio, christmas dinner and of course spending time with the family. I do apologise for the lack of posts but I have just been so busy getting ready for christmas and of course there was plenty to do on the allotment along with videos to film. I did get round to putting a few metres of tinsel in the shed as well as a little christmas tree and some lights on the allotment, it looks very festive indeed!
There’s been plenty of jobs to keep my busy up the allotment, I managed to plant my grapevine, sow some broad beans, plant the garlic and tulips, plant some herbs and get the chicken area dug and leveled out ready for the coop to move up. Winter has caught up with me though and I never got round to weeding or digging over other areas of bare soil, so my allotment it looking a little bit sorry for itself and a tad messy, hence the christmas decorations to try and cheer the plot up!
Now that the allotment is being tucked away for the Winter I can concentrate on the christmas presents. Over the past couple of years I have tried to make my gifts, whether it’s sewing, cross stitch, woodwork or jewellery. There’s something special about making a handmade gift for someone and I just love taking the time to create each unique gift. Next year there are plans to create allotment themed hampers for the family, my allotment will hopefully be more planned out and ready for it’s second growing year with lots of herbs, flowers veg and maybe even some eggs!
However, yet again I have left the gift making process a tad late and I’m starting to get a little stressed, there is only 10 more days until Christmas!
I hope everyone is having a lovely and stress free run up to christmas x
