I know most of you are on farms and smallholdings so i guess you grow your veggies etc on site (very envious) but wondered if there are any fellow allotment renters out there.
I took mine on late last year and it is only a small plot really but was very overgrown. My main aim was to grow soft fruit for my preserve making so they have all gone in and i know it will be a few years before i get lots of fruit but i dont mind.
We are also growing carrots,beetroot,chard with my daughter aged 10 growing barley(!!), sweet dumpling squash, strawberries and runner beans in some old tyres. We also made a very small pond out of an old plastic tub which has some plants in.
I like making something useful out of junk and rubbish but it does get me a few strange looks.
We are going to make some scarecrows during half term just to liven the place up..lol
The down side of allotments is the fact i have to load up the car and drive to it and i am always forgetting something so i have a big box full of might needs.
