Extreme Allotmenting

Last week we spent a few days in North Yorkshire.

Taking advantage of a sunny day we decided to explore the coast visiting amongst other places Staithes.

After trekking, (well OK it wasn't really trekking, but the walk back up to the car park was very steep), up the hillside from the town we spotted this allotment.
So why call this extreme allotmenting - for the answer view the short video clip.

If any readers recognise it as their allotment plot then you have my respect!

  1. Yes, it's quite steep around those parts. I'm always on the look out for allotments wherever I go. Hope you had a good break.

    1. We did thanks, Jo. Even fairly lucky with the weather again - lots of rain but mainly at night. Unfortunately the huge lawn was waterlogged so we couldn't make full use of it as a doggy playground!

    1. I also wonder how much soil gets washed down the slope, Tanya.

    1. I'd say East facing from looking at the map, Mark - hope the trees shelter it from winds coming off the sea!

  5. I have actually seen this allotment and was full of admiration. It always amazes me that people will go to such lengths to grow things.

    1. So they are famous, Elaine. Makes us realise that we have nothing to grumble about with respects to our plots.

  6. Nice observation Sue. But if you are talking about extreme gardening try this:

    1. That certainly is an inhospitable environment, Mal. I felt quite sorry for that kale/cabbage.
