Still no pictures
Went down at the weekend, chatted a lot, gave some Jerusalem Artichokes and Rhubarb to a neighbour, took some Jerusalem Artichokes home and put most of the remaining scaffolding boards in to mark out the beds/terracing (it being far too wet to do anything else). It was far too miserable to take any pictures, so I didn't but I did take my Dad to the new allotment to help identify some plants. Needless to say having seen the old allotment at its (almost) worse he was slightly more impressed. Between us (to be fair it was mainly Dad!) we identified lots of Rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries, some black/white/red currants, couple of apple trees, some herbs, and quite a few flowers.
