After waiting for over 3 years, me (me, husband, daughter) now have a plot at our local allotments and we are very excited! As you can see from the picture below, it is in a pretty bad state, but we are looking forward to getting stuck in and making it our own. There is so much work to do so we don't expect to grow anything until Spring at the earliest, by the time we clear it our and prepare the ground.
I am slowly turning into a gardening geek and Monty Don is already a permanent feature in our house on Friday nights, so be prepared for nerdy blog posts about our progress! Wish us luck and if you have any tips or ideas, do share.
