Last year we had some success with growing various fruit and vegetables in containers in our back garden. It was very rewarding, and so we thought we'd get an allotment as it would give us a lot more options of things to grow. Near the end of Summer last year we were lucky enough to find an available one, and, although we got off to a slow start, it is now taking over our lives...

I thought I'd share some of our progress on here.

The plot as it was when we received it.
Some progress being made.
After lots of hard work, the soil was ready for planting, and a polytunnel was constructed. The polytunnel didn't fare well in the wind and rain of April.
Before the hosepipe ban came in. Watering the potatoes with rainbows.
Our plot as it is now. Th polytunnel repaired, lots of potatoes growing, tomatoes, raspberries, strawberries, and various currants all in place.
