2017 ADVENT CALENDAR
« on: December 01, 2017, 07:02:59 »
We used to do this a few years ago. The A4A Advent Calendar. Anybody can join in. The first person each morning who wants to join in and finds it empty can post a gardening/allotment related picture of what they would like to see in the calendar. Have fun, leave remarks, keep it cleanish otherwise the mods will move it to the watershed. Here is the first box open.

Is this what you want for Xmas?  Do you want it gift wrapped?  The reindeer must produce quite a lot.

A welcome sight even the fly seems to like the first offering?

Good idea easier to move.  All you need is a horse!!  And then it will produce the manure as well.  Personally I would prefer a pig, it would enjoy all my stinging nettles.

I see you have your head in the clouds again Digeroo.

Suggest you keep off the festive spirit as you seem to be getting double vision.

Your friends including the Robin must have loved that!

I couldn't do that due to my plots being inaccessible to such a machine.

Have a word with OH she might buy you one for Xmas  :icon_santa:

Same here Tee, I had the body of a Greek God, now it is more like a Greek restaurant.
