Warning warning! I do not actually have a green thumb!But i am attempting to be better, honest.
My mum has to do a lot of Physical therapy and Occupational therapy and through this she has now started to get back into gardening. The Occupational therapy team has managed to get an allotment, which is increasingly hard to do these days(they are prized possessions). So it is now part of her therapy to go there once a week, growing veggies, planting seeds etc.
The problem is that they only use the plot one afternoon a week and are getting overwhelmed by weeds. The solution to this? I volunteer! to help out when i can but i have no clue what to do apart from pull out weeds (i hope they are weeds). They needed someone to do the grunt work as some of the people there just don't have the strength to handle a spade.
So for my first Green Thumb Sunday i have done a lovely collage of my visit to the allotment, with the wee bit of ground i cleared slap bang in the middle. I hope i can make a valuable contribution to the allotment, so any tips on great books, ideas, etc would be great!
