    1. I think it would be about a third of an acre. Victoria (5x a standard size allotment plot)

  2. Gosh very envious of all your space! I assume what's shown in the photos is all yours? You certainly have plenty of work to do to maintain that but it looks very productive and well cared for! Seeing the size of your plot gives a reality check to the amount of time and effort needed to keep up the momentum of looking after the space.

    1. The sire is open plan so other plots join round the edges, Caro which makes things look bigger.

  3. It's all looking very neat and tidy. It won't be long until those beds are a mass of green again.

  4. It looks lovely, like it's raring to go Sue! I am a fan of your grass paths. A neighbouring plot holder ripped all hers out when she started and after a year has a huge expanse of weedy soil to cope with!

    1. In the last picture I think the bed that you mean, Alain is the flower bed, wallflowers, sweet Williams, sweet rocket and dog daisies.

    1. Our grass does stay green in winter Tpals. What happens to yours?

    2. Somewhere under the snow it is brown and dormant. We should start to see green again in April or May if it's a bad year.

  7. It's all looking very shipshape. I love the top photo (sunset I assume, rather than sunrise). I do like to have a good look round other sites. I get so excited when we're out and we see allotments. I ALWAYS point them out.

  8. Those are some amazing shots. We're not too educated on the subject, but you're certainly opening our eyes to it. We thank you for sharing. :)

  10. It's a lot of work, it must take all your time and more at the height of the season.

  11. The weed control fabric has helped a lot, Jessica. There are the two of us working on it and we manage to do lots of none gardening things too

  12. How different it all looks in the Winter. I tell you what, the grass is pretty green, considering it's January!

  14. You are doing well if your plots are looking photogenic at this time of year, Sue. And they do!

    1. Good old weed control fabric, Tanya. We've become lazier and tidier at the same time.
