Cost of the hobby of gardening per year?.

Posted: 14/02/2014 at 20:50

The cost of our plot depends on the size- mine is half £15 + £5 PA for membership. We have a shop!! and can buy stuff at trade prices like seeds compost netting etc. We a have a committee with tons of rules, It is a beautiful place, plots are divided with manicured grass, we have various competitions, best plot best scarecrow and heavens know what else. 

The cost? Most thing have been given or got from freecycle. The pleasure of eating your own stuff is priceless.

I do spend quite a bit on my garden but have never added it up.

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

I've sown tomatoes chilli and sweet peas in trays sitting nicely on the window sill. I've also grown potatoes in a bag as an experiment but will grow the rest directly on the allotment, chitting very nicely at the moment.

Gardener come.....

Steve- As a pet Dr would you by any chance have anything I could use to put my dear friends the moles to sleep?!! As a Veggie I couldn't possible shoot them.

Brilliant idea Forester2- now let me see how my Russian is? or perhaps I need to talk to the 'chosen one.

LOL went to the library this pm and right in front of me on the table was a kids book for sale-Moles babies!! for 20p- no I didn't buy it.

I get moles in the back garden too but as the side garden is pretty big they have more to tunnel I guess.

Glad I made you smile SS.

Dear Mole family

I fear it’s time we had a heart to heart chat about your ever-increasing houses on my humble garden. May I suggest that to accommodate your ever-growing family that you relocate to a more des res? How does the famous football pitch nearby sounds to you? Did I see your boys wearing blue?  Or perhaps the world-renowned garden with its exotic flowers is more to your liking, by the way how are you sense for smell these days? I do recall on my recent visit to the garden a few tell tell signs of building works in progress-perhaps you have relatives there already.

Incidentally how was the coffee morning? Did you enjoy the coffee that my mischievous teenager poured down your drive, or the chillies powder to make you sneeze? Oh dear I do apologies but boys will be boys.

Seriously though with all the tunnelling going on, I think it could be put to better use. How about challenging you energy to create a tunnel linking Heathrow to Gatwick?

M25 family would be so relieved as they need all the help they can get to get thinks moving- me too so I can get to work on time.

So finally, our love hate relationship has to end for the sake of the lawn, buttercups, daisy, and dandelion families.

Yours truly,

Weyplotter xx
