Marking Time

This year has been a very difficult one for me at the allotment. Just as the new season of activity was about to start it was discovered that I needed urgent major surgery. This took place mid March and I was told it would be around 5 months, if all went well, before I could begin to do any real work on the plot.
All did go well, and I have managed to get some crops in the ground even though the first flush of annual weeds managed to set seed before I got to them. The perennials also managed to dig their roots in wide and deep. As a result I seem to have spent most of my time chasing new weed growth.
Good job we get to start afresh each year so I am marking time, and making plans, ready for next years session.
