It has been a hectic few days but I always have to go to work at the allotment. I sometimes feel embarrassed answering the phone and confessing that I’m at work because the truth is, this doesn’t feel like work. Growing our own food, showing the children how to fend for themselves, animal husbandry (we keep free range pigs), and all that we do is a way of life. I spent the past few days in Dublin city centre and there is nothing more grounding than going up to the plot to get work done.
I’ve not been out running this week. Since I smashed my record time at the Park Run last weekend, my left knee hasn’t been right so I have had to rest it. I figured for the vlog this week instead I’d give you a bit of a tour of the allotment. I’ve trimmed the video a bit because I didn’t realise how windy it was on Sunday morning! Also the 6-year-old displayed some pretty spectacular comic timing with the water hose about halfway through. Messer! Some background information for you:
