Covered in mud.
They’re the ultimate symbol of the keen allotment holder, and mine are no exception. Since taking on the allotment in 2013 it’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride with successes and mishaps along the way. From tackling weeds, planting seeds, creating culinary masterpieces from our home grown produce and the full on war with slugs and snails that most allotmenteers engage in, we’ll be sharing it all.
The BIG change that happened last year is that I’ve now acquired a helping hand down at the plot. My partner is now a fully fledged convert to the world of allotments (he even has his own green wellies) and is as keen as mustard to get cracking with some of the trickier jobs and long term projects we have in mind to really make the allotment our little slice of self sufficient paradise.
So, if you’re a first time plot holder or novice gardener please feel free to ask any questions and we’ll do our best to help in any way we can. Equally, if you’re an experienced allotment holder we’d love to hear your top tips and tricks to help us and everyone else out there to get the most out of growing your own.
