What to do with an old bird box.......

Having seen several nice bug hotels in local garden centres, it was Mr Digandweed's idea to to use an old bird box ( spurned by generations of birds ) and some offcuts of bamboo to make our very own bug hotel for the allotment, in the hope that the ladybirds will find it more of a des res than the birds did!

Mr digandweed and myself took on our allotment in april last year. For those of you wondering about the meteoric progress in the first 3 posts, they provide a potted history of our achievements during 2011!

We are now in real time and excitedly watching the progress of our potatoes. A few weeks ago we planted rocket, charlotte and maris piper and the rocket are just showing their faces.
