Last Monday I was watering on the plot to the sound of church bells as the bellringers held their regular practice session. This week I am listening to the bailer as it makes its way around the fields of the nearby estate. I am so lucky in being able to rent a plot with such fabulous views.
I am also fortunate to be able to divide my working week between gardening and teaching. And so the earlier part of today was spent in Bath,which meant I could spend half an hour browsing in the bookshop and grabbing a sandwich to eat here.
And there was still time to get back to pick the apprentices up from school before we headed over to the allotment for a bit of pre-dinner weeding.
Tomorrow morning I’ll be back in my wellies for a spot of planting in the Children’s Centre garden and putting up their hanging baskets. I love my job.
