Ted's Bounty

Yesterdays rain was SO welcome it could only be regarded as liquid sunshine. The ground was looking so dry and parched. Today it is blowing fierce gale force winds and so far there are two casualties that I know of. One of those plastic covered greenhouse kits took flight from somewhere lower down the plots and, narrowly missing Jack and Tom's greenhouses, was arrested mid flight by Cathy and some other plot holders. The other casualty (sob) was my own cold frame whose top was flung back and the glass smashed. My own stupid fault really for leaving it propped open too much in such windy weather.

However, I missed all that fun as I was out collecting Ted's Bounty. Ted is in the process of downsizing his gardening operations and had lots of goodies to give away. We got three water barrels, two more compost bins, lots of trays and pots and propogaters and some bocking 14 comfrey plants yippee and loads of other useful bits and pieces. Our very grateful thanks to Ted and......if you're reading this tonight......one of the other plotholders is interested in the greenhouse frame and is going to ring you.

Everything seems to need doing at once now but we don't have a huge amount of time for as well as the usual work commitments we have to spend any spare time we can grab rehearsing to play at the Fete de la Mazurka on Friday & Saturday nights with a newish lineup that could really do with at least three more rehearsals but we have no chance of that. Oh well, I'm sure it'll be alright on the night. Herself is muttering meaningfully about needing a base flute now!

--------------------------------

This is a form email that we are sending you because we came across your blog and liked what you write.

We are currently looking for writers to submit entries to a new blog we are launching. www.5rods.co.uk

The blog is going to draw from a number of contributors of all levels of experience focusing mainly on allotment gardening.

Our plan is to build up both content and click-throughs, with a view to increasing revenue with sponsored links.

We intend to be completely transparent with the way we deal with our contributors – it is our ultimate aim to be able to pay for submissions, but this is something of a chicken + egg scenario.

Initially the main motivation for posting on the blog will be exposure and linking back to your own blog.

You can either write specifically for 5rods, or you can post articles that you wrote for your own blog. You will retain copyright on your own work and we will allow trackbacks to your own site.

If you are interested or have any questions – contact me on marc@5rods.co.uk

Cheers

Marc
