I joined a short whilst ago but didn't get a chance to pop on here and use the forums and say hi to everyone.
Ive got an allotment, I love it and find it a lovely way of de-stressing after a hard days slog in the office, since having it my stress levels have reduced dramatically.
I grow everything from fruit and veg to flowers and herbs. Some days after work I don't go up to do any work on the plot, instead I just like to pop up, make a cup of tea and just relax in on the plot listening to the birds and perhaps say hello to a couple of fellow plot holders.
We have all sorts of wildlife on our lottie site, deer, badgers, foxes, rabbits, moles, mice as well as a variety of birds including some buzzards over the back and, not forgetting the pheasents - a pair seem to have taken a liking to our plot and I keep finding them on it of an evening - Im just hoping they arn't looking for somewhere to nest.
I love getting my hands dirty - the feel of the soil, the smell of fresh air and the tranquil sounds of the breeze through the trees and the evening birdsong is just heavenly.
Anyway, I hope I'm able to advise and am made to feel welcome on your forums.
For now though, my lunchbreak is nearly over and I must make a cuppa before I start work again.
p.s I wasn't sure which forum area to pop into and say hi. x
