For Country Kids this week, I thought a picture of the fledgling family allotment would be a good idea. The man’s friend has had an allotment for a while, and the one next to his became available. It’s not much money a year, so he decided to take the plunge and take on the overgrown eyesore next to his pal.
As the man helped his pal clear his allotment, he now has to return the favour on ours.
Some tree roots needed dug out, and old carpets seem to have been sewn into the land, and need digging up. So, the pair of them along with 5 kids descended on the patch of over – run ground and got stuck in.
The two smallest kids were more interested in work watching, so I don’t think they did very much, but the bigger kids all had to take their turn at the spade. I am hoping that they will be lovely and tired tonight.
There’s a musty old shed that needs taking down, so I’m sure that will be replaced by a new shed he builds himself after a while. In the meantime, he is using his friend’s one which is much better.
