I've said it before & will say it again, your plot looks huge! I think I would get lost if mine was that size.
We do sometimes lose one another when we are plotting, Jo
Although to add , it is difficult to tell where the boundaries are as we have a no fencing rule.
I thought that said paranormal! Need to get my eyes tested.
I hope nothing paranormal is occurring, Victoria. Sometimes I wonder though. Maybe the watering can that disappeared from our greenhouse entered another dimension.
Everything ist prepared! What a lovely piece of land for vegetable gardeners. Ich wish I had so much space!Viele GrüßeSisah
Thanks for the comment Sisah. We were lucky and took the plots when no-one else wanted them as allotments hadn't become popular
Allium family always grow well in your allotment.
Sometimes, Diana but not last year.
it`s all looking good especially the grass verges
If only it stayed like that, David
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.
Wait until you see another post planned soon, Jo
The soil looks so porous and well drainage. I'm sure all veggies will grow so well. Hey, the yellow flowers look so striking!
It's actually clay soil, Endah that doesn't drain well when it gets very wet.'
It looks fabulous. Testament to all your hard work.
Thanks, Kerry - Soon the paths will be repopulated with dandelions
Your plot is incredibly tidy and well kept Sue - a credit to both you and Martin's dedication. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
Ah but what is hiding where the camera fails to pony, Angie?
A lovely plot of land for some gorgeous produce Sue! Have you been enjoying the Allotment Challenge?
We only watched the first one, Chel. I'm afraid it isn't for us.
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
The transformation over the next couple of months is amazing, Snowbird.
I love to see these big sweeping shots, your plot is a thing of beauty.
Your plot is really huge! What plant is it with big leaves on the 1st photo?
That is rhubarb, Malar
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!
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.
It's all looking fabulous Sue - all your hard work has paid off - let's hope it stays like that - some hope eh.
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.
Awesome post and stunning photos thank you for sharing
Thank you Linda.
You allotment looks a lot bigger than mine. How many plots do you have and how big are they?? Maybe you just use the space well?!?!
I have two and Martyn has three, Tanya I guess altogether they come to about a third of an acre.
