New allotment OMG...

Congratualtions on getting you plot Gardengirl, I'm sure you are going to make very productive, don't know where you find your energy from!

When I was living on the farm last year, we were after a shed and found one on Gumtree I think, we just had to take it down and reassemble it. It was a really large one but is still standing up there now. The new tenants are using it for a wood store.

Have turned my a part of my garden into a productive plot and the other half into flowers.

Pallets

Very nice pallett creations sanjy, the lettuce planter is a real space saver and love the planters on wheels. Well done for making them, my partner is the creative one, I just reap the benefits.

His latest construction, it the new chicken house. Still needs a finishing up with paint and maybe some better wire in times to come. Made with next doors  ramshackled shed (permission granted before construction)

Has now started on converting the shed into some sort of summer, log cabin house

Thanks Wonky. I've made several gardens in the last few years. When I left my first there were a few tears, but I've learnt over the years, gardens can move with you. This place feels more secure so off I go again. Good luck with yours too, there is something very exciting to start off with a blank canvas (once the weeds have gone).

Take some pictures as you go

Anyone done any gardening today?

Laid up with a very stiff and sore neck so only managed to shuffle round the garden looking, still things are growing and on the whole doing well

Beautiful gardens on here, lovely to look at. Your patio is stunning Francis and love that Clementis in the pot, looks so health. You must have had some lovely times out there with your plants.

I live in rented accomadation and have moved fairly regularly these last few years. Here's some pics of my new plot. As sure as we can be that this is more of a permanant home, so been cracking on with the garden

 The first pic was at the end of March and the last one was taken this week. Things really start to grow when Spring is here

 

My neighbours dont want me to use my land to grow a garden

Be good to see some pictures of your plot Shirley. I wouldn't give in without a fight, don't let them put you off. The idea of fencing and then planting a wildlife hedge is a good one.
