We had our committee meeting today. Less said about it the better. The only two things I will share from it is that D has decided to join the committee (rather him than me); and we have officially given up our first allotment plot. So here are few words from me for Plot 11.
Goodbye to the nettles...
that introduced me to nettle stings - ouch
But also nettle gnocchi, nettle risotto and nettle mash,
goodbye to the bindweed that tried to strangle my raspberry canes,
goodbye to the raspberries that fed me like a princess,
goodbye to the endless grass-cutting, weeding and burning
goodbye to the boggy ground when it rained even a little bit,
goodbye to my hand-made pond that only saw one frog come and go,
goodbye to the yellow submarine shed,
goodbye to the pretty bird houses, that saw a blue tit or two
goodbye to the neds shouting abuse and throwing stones over now and again,
goodbye to the midgies that tried to sabotage my toiling and digging,
goodbye to my cranky gate, that let me in and let me out,
goodbye to our labour of love.
Goodbye to my first ever allotment plot, it was lovely while it lasted.
Goodbye Plot 11.
