Perusal

On our last visit to the plot I took quite a lot of photos to record how things were looking at this stage in the year. It's always interesting to look back over the years and see how things are different each year.

I've popped many of the photos into the slideshow below. If you have the time to spare to look through the album you will see that there are still areas in need of some general tidying and also plenty of planting space still to go at.

If the photos change too quickly for you - hover over the bottom of the slideshow and a control bar will appear. You can then pause the show and use the arrows to operate manually. If you click on a photo it will take you straight to the photo album used. Or click on this link to view a full screen version - without captions - of the slideshow.

  1. That looks like a very productive plot Sue, I wish mine looked like that, who gets to do all the mowing though?
    It was interesting to see the Jostaberry too :)
    Thank you for sharing

    1. Martyn does but I'm fully occupied whilst he is doing that - I do some edge tidying.

  2. Loved the slide show Sue, gives a real idea about your plot. Really interesting. How large is it - the pics make it look huge but I guess they might be deceptive.

    1. It's about a third of an acre Liz so it is quite big.

  4. All looking good. I haven't even sown my parsnips yet, another job which has been forgotten about and left on the list. I must get round to it this weekend, though it's raining here at the moment.

    1. I hope you spotted the weedy bits too! Just to prove we have lots to do to knock it into shape.

  7. How many allotments do you have Sue and what are the size of your plots as you seem to have an awful lot of land there. Everything is looking great, I don't know how you find the time to do all that and keep your garden so spectacular too. Also what green manure do you use??

    1. Between us Martyn and I have five standard size plots, Tanya. When we took them on over the years each was in the state shown on this page on my website

      At that time our site was semi-derelict and because so few plots were taken there was a danger that the site would be redesignated as grazing land so the peoople who had plots took on extra ones to keep the site going. Then there was the surge in interest so the site became fully occupied and now it seems the bubble is bursting as there are vacant plots again. I think people now want a plot that is fairly tidy and don't want to have to set to and spend a year clearing it especially as rents are now quite high.

    2. Forgot to answer the green manure question - so far we have grown phacelia and winter tares.
