Col's garden

Strawberry bed, one of them that is! Just waiting for a good day's sun!!
Latest sowings done, others germinating nicely and tomatoes on the way.
The polytunnel ( what was left after the arson a while ago). The red grape vine survived. Onions, lettuce , rocket and cabbage growing, carrots need sowing.
Must get these out asap! The little greenhouse, which needs recovering with plastic after the ravages of the last Winter

The Shed. Home from Home, with a comfortable chair inside that I've curled up on a few times.
Now with the patio growing as planned, at last!

It is an odd weather day, warm but with a chilly breeze, fine rain showers with gentle sun in between.
Celery and broad beans



This is where I've been happy for three seasons.

Look like a wonderfully productive plot, I'm sure Col would have been very proud.

Lovely to look around your happy place. I adore the bench in little green house and the shed with the curl-up-in chairs. Such a lot of work but you obviously enjoy it. x

Ah, the comfy curl up chair is inside The Shed!!

I know, sorry, I was imagining it, lol.

Now I know what my plots should be 'ooking like... I'd love to know more about Col's garden.

Everything growing, all new.

I wish we Americans did that allotment thing more. There seems to be a movement here to turn our back yards into gardens. I hope it catches on.

Looks like a lovely *little* (haha) plot, looking forward to seeing you and it xx

A little diferent now, but not drastically so!

I've got Col's garden ready to hand over, and now there is a small waiting list for plots, so the time to move on has come

The plot looks wonderful, must be sad to let go. But like here, allotments are at a premium. Hope the next owner loves it and looks after it too x

It will be three new tenants.
