Feathers, feathers everywhere! 

Another manic week at work (with an even busier one next week!) I dashed down to check on the chickens this morning. I was shouted at and roundly abused for not being quick enough to feed them. So nothing unusual!  The community garden continues to be worked on - we now have 10 gold fish,... Continue Reading →

Community Garden Progress

This week has been Geoff, Mick and a few of the usual crowd have been incredibly busy sorting out the new pond. Here are some photos of the process! The pond liner is due to arrive on Monday and the guys plan to have it filled by the afternoon. It's over 2ft deep to accommodate... Continue Reading →

Autumn Bee Inspection

Last Sunday was the final bee check of the summer. I am not sure what we are going to do on a Sunday afternoon now! We removed the feeder now after two weeks. The feeder fills a super and is designed to allow the bees access to the sugar water without drowning (which they are... Continue Reading →

Winding down for winter

It's been a manic few weeks at my new job and visits to the allotment have mainly consisted of running down to feed the chickens, clean them out and not much else. Today I went down to do a partial clean out of the coop and to turn over the soil in the coop. It's... Continue Reading →

Busy, busy, busy!

Today was a full day down the allotment - chickens fed and watered. A couple of eggs but then it was still early. Molly has been moved back into our main coop and is bearing the brunt of the arguments between the chickens. Hopefully she will stand her ground and they will all settle down... Continue Reading →

Apart from dashing down to feed and clear out the chickens,  the plot has been left to its own devices.  Geoff's chickens seem to have almost... Continue Reading →

A relaxing Sunday

Yesterday I popped down to the allotment to feed the chickens - they are still in two distinct camps and never the twain shall meet except to peck at each other. Give it a few more days and they will have calmed down...hopefully! Birds fed, I started to clear more weeds from the centre of... Continue Reading →

Back with a bang!

Sadly no updates on the allotment the past week as I was suffering with a whopper 3 day migraine - it was all I could do to drag myself out to feed the chickens. Back to normality today and raring to go. I headed off to the allotment. Things have changed in the coop in... Continue Reading →

Reclaiming the plot!

After the rain that has plagued us the last few days, I managed to spend a good amount of time down the allotment on Friday.  My aim was to continue clearing the seemingly unending mass of weeds at the top of the plot. I cleared half before I got distracted by the strawberry bed which... Continue Reading →
