New Allotment

The past two weeks have been a bit of a mad rush. A friend of mine was offered an allotment and suggested to me that we take it on together. It seemed like a great idea as I had tried on my own before and it was difficult around my caring responsibilities and this allotment was very near my sons school....

Well the sun was out so we got cracking with it! Here's what we have done so far. I think it's fair to say that my friend has done the majority of the digging!

We also put up our own shed. I think there were a lot of doubtful faces around the allotments when we started it, but no help was needed!

When we took the plot on there was already herbs, rhubarb and raspberries planted... it's time for sowing and growing :)
