Hi everyone. Here I am, writing from my allotment plot and it’s the first day of the COVID-19 lockdown in the UK. Although M. Gove confirmed this morning on the BBC1 news channel that allotment gardening was still allowed. This is because plots are a good distance from each other (in our case it’s 5 meters wide and if you check out the video on the right hand side of this text you will notice that the site is empty).

I have decided to resume with the blogging again as of today. Some of us, who aren’t able to attend to their plot or their garden will hopefully be interested to find out what’s going on in the allotment. As I am looking out from my summerhouse the bees are buzzing, they are going about their business as usual. I can report that we’ve had a frost last night, which means that leftover potatoes that started sprouted again got burnt. Luckily, I had decided to cover my lettuces with a plastic cover in order to force them. I have uncovered them so that they can make the most of the sun, like me.  Please check out the video to experience how peaceful the allotment was this morning.
