Planting up the fruit and veggies

 New strawberries   Sadie dibs in the new seeds

 Courgettes potted up  Watering the plants

Spring on the allotment

Spring is begging for attention,

time to dig in the new strawberry plants

for Sadie to dib in the new seeds,

the courgettes to be potted up.

The onions and garlic have been

safely in their beds

since the autumn and are thriving

they cast a patronising glance in the direction

of newcomers, while Alan fills a can

from the newly installed water butt

ready wash away their arrogance

and any potential arguments.
