About me

I always wanted to have an allotment, and I did share one with a friend for a couple of years but it was in a less than ideal location for me so when she needed to give it up, my husband agreed to let me have the back left quarter of our garden to turn into a veg plot.I now have an area about 4m x 13 m (43' x 13') lying NE to SW. My plan for 2009 is to return here each week with a photo and progress made to date - my theory is that if I commit to doing this in a public place I will have to get on and do it, rather than procrastinating as usual. Otherwise you might be demanding to know why there has been no further progress.It is currently mostly grass and a dumping ground ie when my husband emptied the shed that's where the content's got put, and they're still there! Now where's that spade? Ok it's dark here now. I'll be on to it tomorrow, weather permitting
