I’ve made a century

I’ve made a century.  No, I’m not a cricketer, and I’m not (quite) ready for my telegram from the Queen.

But I have reached a bit of a milestone on the blog with the 100th person following it.  So thank you, not only to number 100 but all the 99 readers who went before.

I started this blog to keep a record of my allotment and my little adventures along the way. But reading your comments has made it much more interesting, and it’s lovely to think that I’m writing to someone – not just talking to myself!

Cheers.

Cheers

Happy gardening

    You’re welcome. It’s been a pleasure.

    To quote a Canadian band (a cousin of ours is a band member), “You are ahead by a century”.

    Well done Jean and the sky is the limit now :). I love your blog, your allotment and how you live your life and love to read about how sunny, warm and gorgeous Brisbane is while we are here in Tassie with Brunhilda blazing away and dark days and rain all around us. It’s a little patch of Aussie sunshine online 🙂

    Congratulations, I enjoy reading about your adventures. We just picked a few of our carrots yesterday, they are more like baby carrots in the stores but much tastier.

      Pleased you are enjoying the blog Lois. It’s worth growing your own carrots if you can, much sweeter.

        My granddaughter was so excited to find carrots, which aren’t her favorite vegetable btw that she ran in the house and picked out a bowl to take them home to share. She set two outside for the bunnies and then divided them up between the family members, with a little ranch dressing she gobbled her share down with a smile that she grew them. I was never a big fan of raw carrots until I tasted some locally grown last summer, this year I had to grow my own as they were so delicious.
