2nd May 2015

 Saturday 2nd May 2015 began well but ended in personal turmoil as our pet Standard Poodle had fallen down the stairs at home whilst I was at the allotment which has meant huge changes to our daily life in the week since. On Saturday evening we were not given much hope but over a week later and the dog is healing well and awaiting a MRI scan to see if he has suffered any permanent damage.
 In the morning I planted out some Chinese Artichokes (Stachys Affinis) that I purchased at the start of the year online and had been growing them in the greenhouse since February. 4 were planted in the small veg patch that I have at home whilst the remaining 8 were planted at the allotment in the bed facing the entrance to the plot.
