I planned on being at the allotment all weekend as the snow had cleared and I badly needed to dig over. Saturday was spent cutting back brambles and dog rose (which is NASTY) and almost getting my face torn to shreds! My housemate helped a lot and between us we got half the (useable) allotment dug over. Content with what we had done and completely knackered we returned home planning to weed, rake and hoe it the next day.

The weather however had other plans. Saturday night the snow returned with vegeance! Not to be beaten we went anyway. I had forgotten my camera on Saturday and was a bit disapointed to get the same snow covered photos that I already have (mainly because I wanted to show off the digging). It was however a lovely day and my housemate set about making a fire as I battled the brambles and pulled down the rotting pallet fence to get to the rubbish that had been dumped (see rant in previous blog entries!!).

Unfortunately, the weather was still against us and an hour in it went from lovely sun to hail to what I can only describe as a blizzard!! Haha!

Poppy wasn’t impressed so we retired to the house wet, cold, covered in snow, but pleased we had got so much done…
