Against the odds

I spent some time today gathering nettles and comfrey for the vermicompost, which means I passed the allotment area. I can't remember when I visited my allotment, so my hopes were low when I gazed across the field to "my" spot. Of course there were a few eye sores there, like big bushes of weed, but the sunflowers were flourishing too, and when I took a closer look I could see a healthy tuft of swiss chard. Everything isn't lost.

Sounds like my garden right now. It is filled with weeds and overgrown because I can't tend to it.

(btw this is MrBrownThumb I'm just using an account for a new blog I've created)

Depressing, isn't it? Good thing about it is that it's always a way to rebuild the garden no matter how long it's been left along.

The new blog is great! Glad to see that you're back in business.
