Latest project taken from a children's book titled Ready, Steady, Grow! An excellent book for quick and easy projects for the young gardeners out there! This is called the Enchanted Path which are stepping stones made with cement and Rhubarb leafs. Very easy to make and great fun for the inner child. I made these this evening so they should be dry by tomorrow morning as long as the weather stays dry. These when ready will be going up to the allotment in my little ones patch!

I recently became the owner of an allotment, it is great. It is such a lovely place to be for me and my Baby out in the fresh air enjoying the warm sunshine. I am planning to keep chickens on it in the near future. I have planted some potatoes and Lupins which are growing nicely.
I soon realised that having a bored baby was not allowing me to get with the planting digging etc. So the plan was to create a space for him to play and explore in. I have three apple trees on the allotment and a grass/ nettle area this is going to be his. My brother was able to get me some wood and the plan was that he or other family members were going to build it for me. This was going to take some time so I decided to build it myself and here it is. I enlisted the help of my daughter and sister and I am pleased to say that I am very proud of us, what an achievement! I painted it today and took lots of photos. It just goes to show that if you put your mind and hands to it you can do anything!.
