Allotment Adventures

Wow, it’s been a while hasn’t it? I’m sorry I’ve not posted in a while, my laptop no longer works which makes it increasingly hard to blog! I’ve got exciting news since I’ve been gone though. I’ve been working non stop on the allotment which is finally starting to look more like an allotment and less like a forest.

before and after

The photo on the left was taken when we first chose our plot. It was one of the wettest and windiest days of the year… a great day for allotment hunting! As you can see we have made real progress but there is still a lot to be done. We started by cutting down the taller weeds so we could at least get onto the plot. We then began digging down to get as many of the woody roots out as possible. I have also acquired a shed which you can see in the top right corner. We just need to figure out how to put it up now!

I’ll be keeping you all updated with the progress of the allotment and hopefully we’ll have some vegetables planted soon! To see more pictures of our adventures check out the Vegan Beckles Facebook page!
