Well have so enjoyed watching everything grow!! all the hardwork, labour of love and now harvesting huge amount of broadbeans and lettuce..Getting use to the oddities of allotment life such as padlock being put on the gate the right way!!! Clearly I need to retire and then will be able to focus my head on such important matters.
Here is our shed all freecycled if you read my last blog and a little jubilee spirit to keep birds off the brasicas""

As you can see puddling in the leeks!
potatoes doing well and really enjoying the allotment even working full time both of us!!

I love that allotment plot, one of the prettiest I've seen and so neat and tidy too. I don't know how on earth you manage to do it working full time, but good on ya! :D

p.s. what is 'jubilee spirit' please and how does it work? Just for future reference!

Hi long time away now we no longer have the allotment as I was caring for my mum who has now,passed away so the allotment police visit and the decision was clear mum won! Never mind so one else will benefit from our plot!! Jubilee spirit is all the jubilee bunting we put up to enter into the spirit of things but to mainly double up and scare away unwanted munchers of brassica 's
