I feel like I have fallen off the planet for the past few weeks.  Last week I was delivering a week long conference, then I caught a terrible bug that was going round – I lost a lot of weight, didn’t eat anything for two days, slept for days.  I am now only beginning to get my appetite back, one small mouthful at a time.

Food hasn’t been my best friend for the past week so I haven’t got anything lovely to post, however, I do have some pictures of the first signs of new life on the allotment.

Here’s what the allotment looks like at the moment…

And the first signs of life…



No matter how weird-looking rhubarb is when it’s emerging, there’s something comforting about these first signs of life amongst the dreary greys and soggy browns of the allotment.
