Cheerio, cock!

Bill told me this afternoon that he has sold the cockerel currently on my allotment. The cock and two elderly hens have been companions on my half-allotment for several months.

Truthfully, the chickens have not done a particularly good job of clearing the site. Yes, they have pecked at the weeds. But, that has done little to get to the root of the problem. The root, of course, is the root.

Still, I have been happy to see Mr Cock and his misses there on every visit. I shall miss him when he goes off to his new home. He is off to service 25 wives!

Yep. There’s a potato or three sprouting. Good news after a close examination this morning.

In other news, I’m told that there is an ‘inspection’ by the parish council on 14 May. No idea who is to lead this event. No guesses which allotment that will come under intense scrutiny. Oh, by the way, my weed infested lump was previously occupied by … a parish councillor.

Good bye, cocks!
