To the soil-based fun of the allotment! It was meant to rain today, but hurray, my naked anti-rain dance on Byres Rd at 1pm (you missed it?!) meant that it stayed dry nearly all the time, so we could work hard up there. There are now things in the ground all over the place. The digging, the worms, the mounds of earth, the manure, the smells, the wasps, seeds! So many different seeds. Borage seeds look like alien pods. Gooseberries are now growing on the bush, we made a big strawberry cage, the fennel's all joyous and huge and green and there's brand new horseradish (a bit like an overexcited dockleaf) after me thinking it had disappeared; borage and St John's wort and hyssop, so much hyssop, the borlottis and the peas and the potatoes sprouting, every single seed potato I put in gladly on a bed of manure is up; big thick treetrunk stems of garlic that throw off a whiff whenever you touch them, big asparagus trees, carrots spiking out of the bath to keep the fly away; courgettes, pumpkins and squashes with big hands outstretched. Marvellous, lovely, wonderful. I can't express how much I love it.












I love being an old man.
