Aside from a brief shower, today was a beautiful sunny Sunday, so we decided to take Aria to our allotment. Granted, she’s a little too young for her first shovel but our allotment needed a little love after a wet winter.
We took it on nearly a year ago now, as we wanted to grow our own fruit and veg, and it’s been so rewarding to eat what we’ve grown so far. From our first potatoes to strawberries and raspberries, there really is nothing like growing your own.
On our visit today it looks like rhubarb and purple sprouting broccoli are making an appearance, and now we need to start thinking about what to sow for the coming months.
I have to say, hubby is far more green fingered than I am but I try to do my bit with the weeding. At least I did before little one came along!
It’s so exciting to think we’ll be able to introduce Aria to growing things from scratch as she grows up, and we can’t wait to get her involved in caring for it all.
Do any other bloggers grow their own? Let me know!
Thanks for reading.
