Vic's Allotment Adventures

Good luck Victoria, great idea to take pictures now. When you look back after a year you'll be amazed as to what you've achieved I'm sure.

When I took over my plot I decided on some essential veg that I wanted to grow that year and gave myself a target to clear enough room for them. As time goes on I've dug more areas, it saved trying too hard to get everything done at once.

Misty all day, picked up youngest from Canterbury Uni, stopped at Minnis Bay to let Floss stretch her legs, 100 yds up the beach and she was hidden in the fog!

GWRS, we thought so too! . One of the cars towing a caravan was a Bentley, you don't see that everyday!

Hi Gardengirl, I live in Kent near Sevenoaks. My better half was talking today to the council staff cleaning up the mess, apparently the registration plates on the cars and the caravans didn't match. They threw away lots of stuff from the caravans such as kids toys etc, they thought the caravans may have been stolen. The police didn't seem bothered, just hope they're not bothering some other poor neighbourhood for Xmas.

I like this time of year on the allotment, so long as the weather is favourable, I can get it dug over ready for the spring. I think recently dug winter plots look really good.

Our street was ' invaded' by foreign ' travellers'' on Sat evening, we were a bit worried as they set up camp on the playing field adjacent to the allotments. Thankfully they've been moved on, but they left plenty of mess behind including human waste. All the cars had foreign plates and obviously some weren't short of a bob or two as they were brand new Mercedes and BMW amongst them!
