As the winter finally starts to recede, we in the office have decided to take up a plot at the allotment on campus.
The allotment was the brainchild of one of the lecturers, Tessa, who is an environmental champion – it even says so on her business card! She applied for funding last year to turn some of the space on the university campus into an allotment for the students and the local children, and some of the staff have taken plots too.
So far, me and Kerry at work have got out to the plot 3 times and had a good dig, while Elena and I have been growing tomato seedlings in the house, which are shown here with post from Heleen, Heather76 and Bunigirl
To find out what happens to these seedlings, check out our allotment blog, which I set up called RU Outdoors. As you’ll see, I still have a lot to learn about all this plant growing stuff…
