In The Beginning Was The Plot.....And The Plot Thickened! Adventures on a Lancashire Allotment & Miscellaneous Musings.

Nrly finished the broody parlour but ran out of wire staples on the last lap. Only the door to do now and let the chikkins dig the soil over before I sow some grass seed. Then it will be mega cosy for the chiks when they hatch out. Had to put another layer of wire on the inside at the bottom of the run because the chicks that will hatch in 3 weeks time are going to be tiny tiny things and could probably have easily got through the mesh on the first layer.
At home mamma blackbird whizzed by my head at 100mph and landed on the wall. Then she took a tricky route back to her nest in the ivy covering the outhouse. She never takes the same route twice because she is a very clever mamma. She will have clever chiks.
