Allotment from scratch
Very excited to announce that: we have an allotment!! We have just been allowed access to a bit of field that we can now call our allotment and soon to be kitchen garden. The plot is part of a brand new site and so we are literally starting from scratch.
Theres a lot to do and neither of us have ever done anything like this before – so it should be an interesting project. As well as a lot of hard work. Should keep us fit though eh 🙂
So far we have: marked our territory by knocking in some post (all accurately measured and levelled of course); cleared the evil thistles which seemed intent on clinging to anything and everything; and strimmed the whole thing.
I can’t wait to get planting in the spring, so I can use home grown stuff in my recipes.
I will be documenting our allotment journey in the new Kitchen Garden section of the blog, so check back soon to see how we get on with turning a patch of field into something that will hopefully resemble some sort of organised growing area.
