I was going stir crazy indoors, and as I can't do any serious work until my eye heals, I thought I would take a walk up the allotment site.
There have been quite a number of new allotments created this year and here are just a few of them
They have all been rotorvated and fenced off and are looking lovely
But we haven't had any rain yet - so these are wonderfully pristine.
But experience tells me that as soon as we get the rain - then dock weeds will appear - and all those rotorvated weeds, will return with a vengence
But for now I am enjoying seeing the fabulous plots
This was a new one last year
These are at the top of the field and some are looking a bit like a shanty town
Poor chooks living like this
It's a shame really - but I expect the owners will get a letter asking them to clear up the plots
This little lady looked rather sad and worn out - and didn't have the energy to move
Lots and lots of chickens
Guess they'll get sorted sooner or later
These have just been taken over by several men, and it's looking good
There are some with huge polytunnels on them - I'll post some photos later - and I haven't posted the really bad plots! It'll be nice to see the more people up there as it's been almost deserted when I have been up there - and for many many years there used to be just me and I never saw a soul.
Must give my eyes rest - I'll be back soon
