Free Wheeling

We are still having such glorious weather down here in the South East, not a drop on the ground at all.

Not so good for gardeners, allotments or farmers alike and with water quota's the way that they are.........mmmmmm I do hope we get a splash or two soon.

Anyhoo - I thought I would take a leaf out of my lovely friend Lou's book this morning and cycle myself off up to the allotment to do some much needed weeding and watering.

Plus a little planting.

I've had my bike for ages now (she's called Bonnie) - well over a year if my memory serves me right - and I've only just started riding her this past month or so. Naughty and neglectful I know.

But blimey, how much do my thighs ache - and that's just up the road.....and back again!

It's not so bad when I head down to the seafront, it is pretty much free wheeling and coasting all the way down and just one itsy little hill on the way home. Well two if you're counting, but I get off and walk up the last one.

I'm building myself up to ride her down to the beach hut and back - that is a lot of very steep hills. OK going down, not so OK going up if you know what I mean?

I do love her so.

And on the allotment front - all watering and most weeding done. I also found a spoon buried whilst digging and the strawberries are just starting to go red - whoop, whoop strawberry jam here we come. Happy days.

Have a lovely day.
