New allotment

This is our new allotment! My mum and dad came and helped us with it last weekend (haven't got a before picture but imagine a lot of weeds!)

We got a whole section dug and managed to save some strawberry plants and an established rhubarb plant (already had a few stems from it!)

Today we went and sorted out a few paths in the front sections and planted up the first raised bed with potatoes! It is so satisfying going there and doing some work and seeing an immediate result from it It is also very relaxing and everyone we meet there are really friendly.

Below is the tiny patch of garden we have at home, I have planted up lots of vegetable seeds that we can keep an eye on until we can plant them out!


  1. Wow, you're clearing that so quick. fingers crossed for a great harvest!

  2. Fun! Look forward to seeing your crops,

    Hugs, Estelle xx
