I was lucky to acquire allotment 5A after lusting after the idea for a month or two – that was three weeks ago! Since then every weekend, no matter the weather, has been on plot 5A. It was clear on our first visit that the ground was looking in a bit of a sorry state, without doubt, but the whole family were happy to roll up their sleeves and help!
Plot 5A is beginning to look more like home after demolishing a rather smelly, rat ridden construction and replacing it with a brand new shed, complete with a rather funky cat coat hook!
The shed was built, with a lot of help from the family, last Saturday. It was absolutely freezing and I was very grateful to them for braving the cold! The shed is stereotypically a ‘man’s sanctuary’!! Not this one…it’s most definitely my pride and joy.
Progress has been really good but we still have loads to do before planting can begin. Fingers crossed for fair weather this Sunday!
