Greffier has now departed this Gardnerville!

I'm afraid this shall be the last post on this blog, but don't fear Gardner and Greffier are still an item - just that Greffier prefers a more reclusive existence - and of course that's just fine by me! ^^
So for future doings in Gardnerville you will need to check in here ...


... oh, and I should also mention here for the ever-so-friendly (clue's in the name) Fine City Friends!

Day 2

This is how it's looking so far ...
see http://finecitycraftiness.blogspot.com/2008/06/weve-got-allotment.html for day one!)
...we actually picked up the key on Friday 27th June.

Got gardening guilt!

Hurrah! Managed to persuade Manu to join me in keeping an allotment blog - hoping it's going to be a shared thing which so far I'm yet to witness - Manuuuuu?!! ;-)

Allotment's coming along nicely. I've come to really enjoy digging - so takes me back to my mining childhood (only joking!) - no really it's very therapeutic.

Anyway, I must confess to feeling very guilty today about disturbing an ants nest. While digging a hole for the first plant of our allotment (woohoo!) I discovered some tiny 'Kinda surprise' shaped eggs followed by a flurry of wings and a scuttling of ants in every direction: "Manu I've destroyed an ant colony - nooooo!"

If I'd known they were there I wouldn't've started digging - all for four rather pitiful looking tomato plants - at least we've got something in!

On a foodie note we sampled artichoke hearts this evening - mmmm! We've (actually Manu if I'm honest!!) has preserved them in olive oil.

We forgot the camera this evening so hoping to get out early and snap a shot of the latest progress - tomorrow early doors. Yawn - better hot the sack now or I won't wake up!

Your turn Manu ...
