The photo below is part of a seed order placed on 1st January 2020. I took up a tenancy of an allotment plot in February 2019. The plot was overrun with brambles and bindweed. It also had a considerable amount of rubbish from fly tipping.



Sometimes I say I am a poet. This blog is both ongoing history and retrospective, a journey journal where I hope to write to learn to write.
