New Allotments Are Taking Shape

Last weekend the hour “sprang” forward and so we have nearly an extra hour in the day to work on the plot. The new allotments are taking shape, we got our polytunnel this week which was a big deal to us. Himself has been down there every day. Putting raised beds together, moving manure, topsoil, digging over the polytunnel, rotovating a wide open area for some loose beds and doing general scrubbing and cleaning of the shed.

Seachtain Na Gaeilge

Má leirionn an blog go minic thú, béidh a fhios agat gur socraidh mé post amhain a scriobh le haghaidh Seachtain Na Gaeilge inniu.

Laibhrim ár dteanga sa bhaile, taobh amuigh srl ach ní bíonn gá dom é a scriobh go minic. So gabh mo leithsceil Gaeilgoirí, táim ag déanamh iarracht!

‘Se bia an priomh-fáth go bhfuil blog agam. Ní oideas atá agam daoibh inniú mar tá sé thar a bheith easca a déanamh so ní feidir liom an tearma “oideas” a cúr air!

Ar aon nós, bia fíor-Eireannach atá ann. Usaid mé prataí nua beaga, píosa cáis mozzarella ó Toonsbridge, slisín gearrtha agus biolar a bhí in a fás ag mo mhac in aice leis an fuinneog ar scoil. Chuir mé gach rud le cheile, agus faoin greille leo (seachas an biolar) ar feadh 10 noimead.

Blásta!
