The whole family helped out on the allotment this morning and the experience was much better than the last time we tried, thanks to Ethan being that much older and less of a liability. The kids helped to pick out the weeds from the raked soil and enjoyed finding Beetles and other beasties. Izzy made a worm school and was convinced they were eating the leaves she provided and were growing before her eyes. B’s knee was giving him gyp, so he gave up digging fairly quickly, but the plot is very slowly starting to look more like a veg patch and less like a jungle, so I was happy. We picked some rather pathetic sweetcorn, (which were nevertheless delicious) and a mooli, which I have no idea what to do with, scrumped some apples from my parent’s tree and went home for lunch.
Total wild time – 1 hour 30 mins
