Video Tour of the Plot - A joint venture,

Although Martyn and I garden together we  try to write our blogs from a different angle or to focus on different things.

Although some of you visit both of our blogs we each have some visitors that are unique to our blog so today we are unashamedly posting the same video. Martyn shot the video and we decided to record our mutterings as we watched it back together. 

Be warned the video is about 8 minutes long. Little editing of the original film has been carried out and it strays into the less tidy areas of the plot so some of the scenes may shock those of you who think we have a pristine plot. Hopefully you will get a better impression of our plot and even understand our mutterings well enough to pick up some additional information.


I hope that you enjoyed viewing if so we may repeat this at a later date.

  1. What a lovely looking plot Sue`s Yorkshire accent is more pronounced that Martyn`s but a nice tour round all the same

    1. What do you mean - all the same? Cheeky! That was my relaxed accent rather than the sanitised version.

    2. perhaps it would be better to make no comment at all rather than upset a Yorkshire person i`ll remember next time

  2. I enjoyed taking a tour around your plot. A great idea to record your mutterings so that we can hear all about what we're seeing.

    1. At least you will have understood us, Jo. I haven't forgotten the promise of a live tour when things are in full swing,

  3. Oh that was great! I really feel I know my way around now. And don't worry about the 'wildlife' area... I've got a whole garden that looks like that!

  4. You made me jump at the end! Lovely to hear you both and have a good tour of your plots. Excellent rhubarb, almost ready for a crumble I think. I shall enjoy seeing round again when things are in full swing. It's handy being able to drive right up to your plot. I have to load up the wheelbarrow and hurtle down a long slope with anything heavy I want to take to mine. The paths are narrow and grassed, and it doesn't always go without incident.

    1. Sorry to make you jump CJ I would have edited that bit out but Martyn wanted to keep it. It is a huge advantage to be able to drive up to theplot especially as we use that car as a mobile shed and take all our tools back and forth. The ploy shed is really for shelter and housing things like netting and feed etc,

  5. Great video, it really helps set the scene and shows how your plots relate to each other. Nice to hear your thoughts on the tour too. I'd definitely like to see another one later in the season! :D

  6. What a great way to show off the plot...I keep saying I will take my video camera down the allotment, no doubt I will get a few funny looks when I get around to it!!

    1. We've always had funny looks, Tanya, When we first took a plot we grew herbs and didn't grow in lines or if we did they were in the wrong direction. We had men standing on the edge if our plot scratching their chins and shaking their heads. Just go for it and give them something to talk about.

  8. I did enjoy the guided tour. Thanks.

    Not sure if I feel better or worse about the neglected state of mine. At least it's a lot smaller than your manor!

    Your unknown rhubarb is certainly an early one!

    Thanks again.

  9. Oh perfect viewing for a rainy Sunday afternoon Sue and lovely to put a voice to the name. Just how big is your plot? I imagine that the first rhubarb crumble of the year will be featuring on the menu before too long.
