No its not that kind of announcement
– I’m not pregnant but I bet I had you going….
We have our first ever allotment and were super excited about our little plot of land – in fact its a 1/4 plot but its bigger enough for us.
Hear it is our expanding empire our little bit of extra land to grow our own fruit and veg, our little getaway from reality.
We know its going to take a lot of hard work as the previous owners didn’t look after it at all and as you can see our neighbour has dumped some rubbish on our land . But hopefully we get the keys this weekend and we cant wait to get started. We have to get it cleared and beds laid out before January which is when we have to plant our seeds for the autumn crops.
The allotment is a 5 minuet walk from our home and me and bear took our first wonder down there yesterday. Well he wasn’t very impressed at all but then again neither am I lol but I know what’s to come and what we are hopefully going to grow. I guess bear doesn’t get growing yet but I’m sure our little allotment will help him understand and enjoy growing.
So why get an allotment I hear you cry ? Well we quite like our garden and its a nice size with borders round the side and a lovely decking area by the patio doors and nice seating area at the back of the garage. We like our garden just as it is and didn’t really want to (I hate to say this ) clutter it up and dig it up to put a veg patch in. With the price of fruit and veg going thought the roof and with the scene of achievement it will give us we really cant wait to get started.
So do any of my readers have an allotment or veg patch – do you have any hits or tips for the clean handed – not green fingered Cheshire wife ??
