It's hard to get to the allotment in winter. Firstly the dark nights mean we can't go after work. Secondly the rain, wind and cold mean that even weekends are often tricky.
However, we have checked on things a couple of times:
1) I popped up there to check on the place and to give everything a final once over before winter. Clearing the last of the final greenery.
2) Jamie dug up the Christmas tree about a week ago. After a couple of nights on the patio in a pot, and a night in the cold outside hallway it came into the living room for Christmas.
Although it is looking a bit fragile, it is still going after 3 years. Who knows whether it will be here next year, but it is a worthwhile experiment.
