new to me allotment
« on: April 06, 2018, 10:42 »
Having grown a bit at home for the last 10 years, we've finally got ourselves an allotment.  The children and I went for a visit last night to see which plot we'd been allocated.  It's been pre-loved rather than one of the brand new ones on the site so we've got a couple of raised beds on it and a lot has been covered with black plastic.  Here's hoping it's dry at the weekend so we can get started.  The children have written a "grow" list already.

Hello and welcome to the heavenly world of having an allotment!

You'll wonder how you ever did without it soon enough :lol:

Your new plot sounds good to go, Debz  :D

The late start this year is a bonus, as there is plenty of time for planting and sowing, and crops will catch up. You must be very excited!
