Almost a codger

Today is my last Sunday in my fifties. I have a significant birthday imminent and next time I post anything here I'll be 60. I already have my bus pass. Bus Pass!!; Ye Gods, I've got a bus pass. How did that happen? Still, I suppose it'll be useful for going to & from the pub!

But does this involve pipe & slippers and "slowing down a bit"? No it don't. There is a standing instruction in our house that if I am ever heard to utter the sentence "I could really do with a nice pair of slippers", Wilma Wilbury rushes me straight to the canal and a fitting for some concrete wellies. I hate slippers.

Anyway, not only is it my last in my fifties it's also the Vernal Equinox, when the days are now longer than the nights. And about time too. Two key signs of vernal equinox on the plot:

Lovage is back


I always feel better when the Lovage (Maggikraut in Dutch) reappears.

And the garlic, planted on Wilma's birthday at the Autumn Equinox, is doing really well. Just look at these.

That's good looking garlic you've got there! Have a good birthday, fingers crossed for no slippers - I hate them too.

The guy on the next plot is 70 and can make the younger plotters look very lazy so I look to him as the years tick by as a sort of comfort!

Garlic's looking good - haven't even planted mine yet. Knew I should have done it last back end!

Apologies for not being around much these past few weeks - life got a little bit hectic and something had to give!

I got all excited about my lovage popping up yesterday too! It was a bit weak and weedy last year but this year it's looking great! Roll on chicken stew...

Happy birthday! :)
