Welcome To our family diary of our allotment !
We have an allotment in mid wales , when we took it on 18 months ago it had been left and unloved for a long time. The previous tenant found it too much and hadn't done anything to it at all.
We had inherited many weeds and mostly grass !! oh and a dangerous rickety shed made from metal sheets.
First job was to make it safe for our children , so down came the shed ! out with the toilet we found inside !
We put up a fence around the bottom of the allotment as there was a big drop down onto a yard below.
We then went about building a long wanted poly tunnel and a new shed both built by my husband with our own materials , nothing bought in . ( In true allotmenteers style !).
Last year we did managed to plant up the whole allotment and we had some good and bad crops !
But this blog is about this years progress !!
So to start here's our allotment.
