I so wish everyone else wasn't so perfect! I have just taken on a new half (only half)allotment after having three pre-children and I just cannot get on with it. Tried taking the children (now four and eight) up there in the summer (such as it was),they just argued and demanded the toilet, iccreams, picnics etc. or moaned that their Nintendo DS had run down. Result, every last tomato got blight, runner beans ran to seed, courgettes rubbish, sweetcorn similar.
I was determined that this September now that my youngest is in school all would be organised and a model of weed free prolific abundance. What happens.....they both get tummy bugs and are off school....followed by my husband and me. Suspect could take a little longer!
