I've been on an allotment waiting list for a little over a year and recently I got The Call. I was expecting to be on the list for a lot longer, to be honest, so I was surprised, but also excited.
The deal was done today, and I now have my very own patch of land.
It's actually been left in a pretty good state as you can see, but needs a good tidy up. Our plot is up to the 'path' which you can see at the edge of both pictures. It's a pretty big patch of land with the potential to grow a fair few veggies.
I'm excited, although a bit daunted given that I have only grown in pots before. We all have to start somewhere, though!
