  1. I've said it before & will say it again, your plot looks huge! I think I would get lost if mine was that size.

    3. I thought that said paranormal! Need to get my eyes tested.

    4. I hope nothing paranormal is occurring, Victoria. Sometimes I wonder though. Maybe the watering can that disappeared from our greenhouse entered another dimension.

    1. Thanks for the comment Sisah. We were lucky and took the plots when no-one else wanted them as allotments hadn't become popular

  5. It all looks so tidy. Obviously lots of hard work keeps it in this shape. It won't be long until it looks different again when everything starts growing.

  10. Very impressive....respect for all the hard work that has gone into making it look so good, it must be back breaking, but now everything will put a spurt on and veggies will appear in no time.xxx

  12. Your plot is really huge! What plant is it with big leaves on the 1st photo?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh, wow, I knew you had a big plot, but I didn’t realise it was that big. A lot to take care of! Down here, that would be allotments for 4 people I think – if you could ever get one, some places there is 20-30 years waiting list!

    1. There are five plots 2 mine and 3 Martyn's. When we took them on no-one wanted plots and our site looked fairly derelict and in danger of being disposed of. The people who had plots took extra ones to keep the site viable. This was positively encouraged by the council who even asked if we would be taking on more. This page of my website shows how the site looked in 2004 although the photos are rather poor quality.We gardened amidst a mountain of head high weeds. See this page on my website to see the state of the plots when we took them on.
      We are told there is a waiting list but some plots on the site have been vacant since February and weeds are moving in. again.

    1. No hope at all, Elaine. I had to smile to myself when I heard a new plotter complaining that he had been and weeded his plot a month ago and he had now come to find it needing doing again, This in the middle of the growing season. I'm afraid some plotters have no idea of the work involved and don;t stick around for long.
