I’m feeling a bit stiff today as I spent a good few hours down the allotment yesterday tending my raspberry bed – my first real allotment workout of the year. My annoying allotment neighbour was there – those of you who have seen the show will know who I mean. “I see you’ve survived the winter,” he quipped and we all laughed.
This is an action shot of me cutting down raspberry canes. And before you ask…No, I have not had a handle installed on my head so Dan can lift me up and pack me neatly into our tour bus – that’s just a spade in the background. I also weeded the whole bed and then covered it in bark chippings although all the best chippings had already been nabbed by fellow plotholders. I’ve been too busy rehearsing for our next show to hang around with my wheelbarrow waiting for the chippings truck so was left with the dusty detritus at the bottom of the pile.
