i was lucky enough to get an allotment just a few paces from my small back garden, you can just see my house in the middle of this pic! i took it on in early 2012 - the year of torrential rain - and struggled to get on top of it until this year. my budget is tight and I have no spare cash to buy or hire fancy equipment; i've dug this densely weed covered space by hand and have broken 2 forks in the process! i'm now digging the final quarter of the plot which will include getting an overgrown raspberry patch under control. i just have to keep reminding myself that it's very nearly done...
my main plan for next year is to give a lot of room to annual and wild flowers for cutting. progress is underway and my potting area is currently awash with all kinds of young plants waiting to fill this almost barren wasteland!
here's my post with some pics from last year.
gardening seriously keeps me sane, i don't know where i would be without some soil to tend. if you're green fingered and have an outdoor space you'd like to share then feel free to leave a link :)
