It’s that time of the year again when I find myself daydreaming about how the plot might ‘be’ this year. Will it be fertile? Will it be productive? What will fail? What will thrive and what might be this year’s real successes?
It’s not normally too long before my attention is drawn to that magical first year and the absolute excitement I felt knowing that the shiny brass allotment gate key was coming home with me and I could use it whenever I wanted!
Here’s a few pics from the first year.
We soon got to work and in no time it started to look a lot better!
We even found some onions from the previous plot holder and a tiny Christmas tree!
Barrow loads of home made compost went in to regenerate the tired beds.
But we made it through the first year to see a magical (albeit a bit scruffy) Boxing Day sunrise!
