#mygardenrightnow ~ From The Allotment


Over at Veg Plotting and as part of the Chelsea Fringe event, the lovely Michelle has extended an invitation to share a photo of our gardens or allotment plots this weekend. I've spent most of my spare time at the allotment over the last couple of days, not only working on my plot but also supporting a plant sale which was held this afternoon. Funds were raised for the allotment association, delicious cake (too much) was eaten, growing hints were shared, plans were made to exchange pears and other fruits for jars of jam but above all there was a chance to meet new faces and strengthen community spirit. Do pop over to Veg Plotting or to Twitter to peek over garden fences and allotment plots from far and wide.

  2. I love going to plant sales held by our local gardening groups! I like to support their efforts and also, I know that their plants will grow here, unlike some things sold at the big garden centers.

  4. It I'm afraid our allotment association was scuppered some years ago by some really awkward plot holders stirring up trouble. So now we stay clear away from any idea of an association.

  5. Good to see a bit of what's happening at your allotments, Anna - the plots clearly are not all like your neighbouring one that was on GW!

  6. Glad you ate lots of cake Anna - it is the right thing to do when visiting gardens (or allotments) Great that you have good relations with all the other allotmenteers.

All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so.
