I found this whilst digging the plot this summer!
Its an 1890 sixpence.
I wonder what it would buy then?
Done a bit of research, so this tiny three quarter of an inch coin would have
had the equivalent buying power of about £12 by todays standards!
I received this wonderful staff as a gift from my good friends Richie and Jenni on the Gower Peninsula, South wales! Follow the link.
I visited the allotment today to melt the snow in the rain guage and check the
minimum temperature; a chilly -4ÂșC!
I have to check regularly for little footprints leading to the shed,
as the last thing I want is rodents eating my seed potatoes!

Espalier, I have trouble spelling it!
Complete with wires, ready for growing my own kiwifruit.
The new plot number will get me a lot of mickey taking!

Strange goings on!

I strolled through the allotments on my way to the shops this morning, and it seems
someone has taken pity on Julien and provided him with a little weather protection!
Nice colour!They also left him a little friend, whom I shall name Sandy.
He badly needs a paint job!

A bit more plot has come up for grabs!
But this time I think I might be being greedy, serious thinking required!
