Allotment 1

We thought we'd get an allotment, because Davina and I like the idea of growing some vegetables, and we don't have enough space in our garden (the car tends to get in the way).

The local council have a long waiting list for allotments, so we decided to look for a private one (there are quite a few farms that have allotments sites in this area). We found one about two and a half miles away. It's only a few minutes drive and its on a bus route (in case I want to use my Freedom Pass).

And here it is:

It was a lovely day today so we went there to put in some blocks to stand our shed on. Here are a couple of pictures of Davina working hard:

This is the completed foundations:

And here is a picture of me, relaxing with a cigarette at the end of all the hard work:

It was really exhausting watching Davina work!

We have drawn up a plan of what we are going to plant.

I will keep you updated with our progress.
