A few weeks ago we took over our new allotment. Hooray! We already have one which has been serving us quite well. The plot next to us has been neglected for most of last year, so we said if it became available and there wasn't a waiting list, then we would love it. So it is ours!
I don't have a photo to post, but if you imagine a plot covered in knee high weeds and grass, interspersed with the odd abandoned car tyre, you will be close. I can't wait to make a start on it!
This year I intend to make much better use of our plot. We are so lucky to have the chance to grow our own veggies and fruit. It would be wonderful to be self sufficient in vegetables and fruit - maybe that should be one of my challenges for this year! Might have to cheat a bit when it comes to avocados - shhhhh, no one needs to know about that.
