There’s just something about allotments, once you have the bug it never really leaves you. The charm and character of the sheds dotted around, the soothing sound of trains whizzing along the track. The general chit-chat weather grumbles, and being around people who, like me, have a deep need for being at one with the seasons and growing food from a slice of land.

Hello, thank you for the interest in my blog. I started my allotment journey in 2011 and now work 2 allotment plots, I’m totally hooked on growing food and a bit obsessed with growing pumpkins and winter squash. The aim of this blog is to document the growing year on my allotments, share the ups and downs of allotment life and hopefully inspire others to get an allotment too!

I also keep chickens at home and they make an appearance on the blog from time to time.

Gardeners are planners. They’re not ‘for the here and now’ sort.
