Thursday night was a beautiful evening and because it was half term the little one was up late. So, at about 7:30pm we made a trip down to the allotment to feed the garden cat and to plant my kohlrabi which has been sat in the back garden for about a week.
We arrived at the allotment and it was already getting late so I quickly planted my kohlrabi while my little helper walked round spotting different coloured flowers. Then, we had some rhubarb to eat because this seems to be one of the best things to do when visiting the allotment. I pulled out a stem and it got munched on the way to feed the garden cat.
We spent about 20 minutes taking care of the garden cat and playing on the rope swing before heading back through the allotments. On the way back to the car we picked up some gooseberries to eat. About 5 or 6 we’re eaten on the way back.
As we got near the car the Swifts and the Swallows were dating and flitting just above head height, catching the flies and bugs. Some of them had made their nests on the houses down the main road in the village and we watched as they flew back to feed the baby chicks.
This was a fantastic end to the evening.
