My week 

This week, I watched the news and the rise in gas and electricity prices. To balance my budget, I will have to reduce my spending. I am unsure which part of my budget to reduce, but it will not be my Priority Bills.

My five hens

Last week I was talking about glorious weather. This week it is snowing. The hens do not seem to have noticed the change in the weather.   They still have a great life, scratching around for bits of grit and corn, but have stopped laying eggs for now.   I am hoping they start to lay soon.  Having to buy eggs from the supermarket is going to be embarrassing!  

Allotment update 

I popped over to the allotment the other day, it was cold, and the wind chill made it feel even colder. Even so, the Peartree has even more blossoms on it.  Strawberries are reappearing. Rhubarb has grown so much this year; it is almost unrecognisable as the plant I left last Autumn. And the leeks have grown taller.  

As you know, I am not a professional gardener. But I am just hoping that my updates will inspire you to grow your food and help save the planet. If you need professional gardening advice, try finding a local gardening expert and see if they can help you.

Week 13 of the Christmas Countdown Challenge
