Woo2 said Gardengirl......8th on the list, any idea what that equates to time wise? Question for all.......where are you all from and how long have you been growing veggies?
Woo2 I think on the email she said 1-3 months just hope I have moved up the list next time I contact them, I know one of the Site Reps at the allotment as he volunteers in the shop - so if there are plots looking a mess I may well ask when I go to the shop - not for a bit yet though as think he is the one that tells the council and list could get shorter
I am from Southampton and been growing veg now for about 5-6 years started with just runner beans, I took over the bottom of the garden which was a bramble mess cleared bits, made raised bed with help and started growing I was hooked, some stuff does well others not as veg area most of it in part shade as trees grew not planted ones in carpet we put down around edge of pond think birds helped with that - that was before the veg growing started I have to walk from one end of garden with watering can though no way of having water butt in veg area no connection points
Always interested in allotments and when I found out the shop on the allotment was open to the public I went had a look around the second time I went for a wonder - as asked if we could - when wondering a lady going to do her watering said are we wanting an allotment the waiting list is not long at the minute, made me think about it for a few days and being on here with Zoomer44 saying about her plot, I decided to put my name down on a list that was last August
Stagbeetle so exciting 5 rods is a nice sized plot
Roy - how is your plot?
