Our little allotment



Today, we visited our very own allotment for the first time. We have wanted to get an allotment for a long time and finally a plot came up. It is alot bigger than we thought and we are so excited to get started. We have so many plans on things to plant and grow and i am very excited by the thought of a little shed on our plot which i can put up bunting inside!

The thought of the girls growing up knowing where food comes from and us always using our own produce for our meals is exciting. Elle is already planning what she wants and is demanding that we bring her wheelbarrow and spade next time so she can help.

We have a lot of work to do initially to get the plot ready to plant and we are reading up on what we can plant right now. I cannot wait to see how our little allotment will be next summer! Full of rhubarb and raspberries and strawberries!

Elle spent the morning helping our friend on her allotment and i came home with 3 kilos of cooking apples!
