Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's dung

It has suddenly become very wintry. Today, it started raining, and they promised torrential rain for tomorrow. It is very cold and windy. Everyone has been busily digging over their plots ahead of the winter weather, with some bringing in rotovators. Heaps of dung have today begun to spring up on the allotment. The Adver couple on the next allotment to me have had a pile delivered, and I covet it. I am downwind of it, and it smells very strongly of the farmyard.

Now, the last of the summer plants are coming up - the Italians are taking down their tomato plants and rooting up their marrows. These were the marrows on Anna and Frank's allotment.
