Rosemummy...........if you are having problems trying to keep up with your garden, I would think an allotment may be pushing it a little this year. Even more so if you have to clear it first before gaining much in the way of harvest. It is surprising just how long it takes to keep an allotment going, particularly when you have small people to attend to and then you risk it becoming a chore rather than a pleasure.
You are lucky with your allotment society/officer if they are prepared to keep you near the top of the list. If it were me, I'd keep in close contact with the Officer and maybe visit the allotments when you can and chat to the other holders. That way, you will be ensuring that your interest remains known to all as well as seeing at first hand what is involved. Next year you might be better set up time wise to take the plunge. I hope so anyway because I'm sure you and the Titchies will enjoy it
