12th day on the plot
Weather: a stiff North wind, the first frost on its way.
I popped up to the allotment for a quickie hour, in a bitterly cold wind which heralded tonight's first frost. I got the remaining end of the first row on the middle-plot dug over and weeded, so I could put the remaining two little gooseberries in. They're a bit small, and the roots are not good — but it's to be hoped they'll be putting down some decent roots by next Spring.
