There it is. That one part of the plot that still needs a lot of attention. It will require some heavy lifting (lots of heavy tiles hidden beneath that tarp) and some tough digging (lots of roots from trees and bushes beneath those tiles). We dream of turning it into a lovely terrace, or maybe a huge flowerpatch, or a place for more stone fruits….

Some cuces for lunch, a few tomatoes to snack, and two gherkins to appease my pickle craving.

I know it might be slightly unlikely that you’ll ‘by chance’ be in the town of Heilbronn in Germany, but if you are: go and have a look at the BUGA (Bundes Gartenschau). I spent an evening there while I was away for work and it was AMAZING!

Pretty fantastic display of Poppies on this currently vacant plot at our allotment colony

Yesterday’s allotment efforts: a fairly weedy fruit patch before, and then after having cleared old strawberry plants ready for new ones in spring and added some compost as a mulch. Satisfying 👍 #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #allotment #allotments #urbangarden #garden #allotmentgarden #allotmentuk #allotmenteer #gardener #urbangardener

January and the allotment is still supplying a few items for the larder, including some Leeks which I thought had been wiped out by leek moth! Huzzah! #allotmentlife #allotmentgarden #allotment #garden #growyourown #growyourownfood #gardening #gardener #gardeners #myvegpatch

Day one of 2019 and I’m working a few Christmas calories off at the allotment. Here’s hoping for a productive year! #allotment #allotmentlife #allotmentlove #allotmentgarden #growyourown #myvegpatch #garden #gardening #gardeners (at Chester, Cheshire)

That’s about 12 kilo’s of sweet potato, from just three plants. And we’re not done digging yet…. We’re going to need ALL your sweet potato recipes!
