Mrs Sciencebase and I took on a plot on our local allotment in April 2019 to grow our own veg. It’s come on leaps and bounds and we have had a lot of potatoes, onions, garlic, cauliflowers, cabbage, squash plants, strawberries, raspberries, and much more. We even planted an apple tree in 2020
UPDATE: The news kept getting better and while things are not quite back to normal and never will be, all of those involved are in a much better place than they were at the beginning of October.
It has been a traumatic week an emotional rollercoaster to coin a cliché, you might say. There is a more positive outlook this week than there was this time last week, so I am now doing a little bit of a celebration of life with some of the interesting and intriguing species Mrs Sciencebase and I have seen this year on our rather lockdown-limited excursions.
