My Blog

It’s week 11 of the Christmas Countdown Challenge. 

In my blog this week…

My week  

This week was all about clearing out my office, so I spent a few days Spring cleaning my office, getting rid of all the old stuff that has built up over the past year, including a mountain of empty files and folders that have now found a new home.

My five hens  

Meet Rosie

I also cleaned out the chicken coop this week, which is hard enough, but when it includes five curious hens, one who keeps trying to escape the coop and eat the lawn!  (Usually, they would be doing just that, but unfortunately, they are still not allowed out of their run) it’s a bit of a daunting task. Once the coop is all clean, they all like to come in and look around their lovely spotless home, especially the new hay in the nesting boxes.  

Allotment update  

Getting ready for my allotment this week, I have managed to get to the Garden Centre and buy my compost, packs of Runner Bean seeds and some plants.  As you know, I’m not a professional gardener. But I’m just hoping that my updates will inspire you to grow your own 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.
