My dear ladies and occasional gentleman, SHALLOTTS, it’s time to plant them. There is nothing tastier in your WINTER STEW than SHALLOTTS.
If you PLANT them now, PULL them in the Autumn, PLAIT them and HANG them in your shed. you can enjoy them over the winter.
All good so far but the problem lies in the fact I am still waiting for the garden in the front of the house to be fenced. Then I can have a RAISED VEGETABLE BED. So I had a little grumble to Ronald whilst showing him a picture of what was required and off he went to his shed. There was a lot of banging and screwing which Ronald is very fond of.
So now we have the constructed raised bed, we just have to place it in the garden. Now I can see a fairly WEED free rectangle that looks perfect but no Ronald decides to place it the opposite way, against a hedge with the weedy ground sloping away and where I won’t be able to get around it.
WE HAVE WORDS.
When the construction is in the right place Ronald takes a PICK-AXE and starts digging a long trench.
“What’s that for ” I ask
“To fit the box in” says Ronald, starting on the next tench.
“But it’s supposed to be a raised bed” says I
“It will be fine trust me” says Ronald knocking the edges even deeper into the ground.
AND THIS IS WHAT I PUT IN IT!
