Having the allotment and having this blog has helped- it's been really great to escape to the plot, even with manuscript in hand, to get a proper break. And thinking that friends are reading my posts has been nice, as well as chatting with new bloggerfriends! Sorry the blog posts have been a bit lax while I've been finishing the academic work.
Well I will update properly, but since our broadband seems to have given up the ghost that might not be immediately! What I will say is that sometimes big things from little things can grow (that is a half thought-out analogy about my MA but also refers to big sunflower above and little sunflower below)
That analogy is rubbish on a number of levels, not least because little sunflower didn't grow into big flower- poor little sunflower just never got potted on- it's the same variety though!
And talking of small things- why have all my squashes failed?! This is the one still trying to grow: it would be spaghetti squash which usually taste of mush anyway. Looks nice though.
Well I'll sign off before broadband gives up again. And next time I will tell you of my new love for a Bloody Butcher but indifference, bordering on disdain, for a Soggy Plum.
