Long time no post

I didn't realise its been so long since I last posted on here.  I'm afraid I have lost my mojo a bit concerning my allotment this year.  I have done the very basic clear and cover up for the winter and been up to feed the millions of worms  in my compost bins (I kid you not) with kitchen waste. I'm amazed at the number of worms this year and hopefully that means lovely compost for next year.  The leaf mould is coming on well too.

I haven't even visited my favourite blogs and I am pleased to see I haven't seemed to have lost my lovely followers, for which I am thankful and I apologise for not keeping up the posts.

As everyone is aware there isn't a lot going on at most allotments at this time of year.
Unless of course you grow during the winter and I have to admit I personally don't ! I find it all a bit depressing up there during these muddy, wet, uninspiring months.

I have been busy doing other things recently such as sourcing old furniture and painting it (shabby chic-ing) long before Kirsty started her TV programme ( I think she's copied me ) ha ha.  I am loving it and being teased by family and have been nicknamed Steptoe. I have to admit the garage looks like Steptoe's yard, but its all getting painted and sold on, when I can bear to part with things I finish.

I will post again and put some photo's on that I took a while back on the allotment.
Until then I hope you are all busy preparing for Christmas and are well.

Your right about the allotments being depressing and muddy especially of late with all this rain we have had but atleast it gives us time to get ready for next year and look forward to all the lovely veggies that are coming our way. Lovely blog by the way

Hi Jean, I just popped over to your blog and left a message.
Thank you for thinking of me for the award , but I don't usually get involved in these things as I don't have the time just now.

Was about to mount a search party for you Maureen. You are not alone losing your allotment mojo this year but I'm sure it will return come spring. At least that's what I keep telling myself :) Have fun in Steptoe's yard!

Hi Anna
Thanks for missing me ! I hope you are right and we get our allotment Mojo back next year. I have to say I am enjoying my Steptoe's yard ha ha ! Love the planning and painting of the things I pick up , even in the local tip ! I'll be called ' Stig of the dump' as well soon !

I must get back into visiting blogs again as I have to admit they do give inspiration to get on with our growing don't they. I hope you and your family are well.

Dear Maureen, I haven't posted very often lately, either. I would love to see some photos of the furniture you have painted. Have a lovely Christmas. P. x

I hope the weather isn't too bad there in the USA It's not great here. But hey ! It will soon be Spring before we know it. MERRY CHRISTMAS
