I don't know what is up with Blogger tonight , I've been trying to upload photos for ages and nothing will load apart from these three - very odd.
I did think twice about whether I should actually do this post now or try again tomorrow but I'm just so excited I had to do it now.
You know the old saying about being in the right place at the right time? Well yesterday that happened to me . I'd gone to visit my friend Mr Peacock at his allotment and we'd gone a bit further down the patch to see his dads plot when we bumped into the chairman and the secretary.
I had a good bit chat with them and explained that I really really wanted some ground , even a tiny piece and they just happened to mention that they knew a lady who was thinking of giving up her plot as it was getting too much for her .
Anyway to cut a long story short I met up with her this morning and she said I could have half the plot until at least next April, maybe even longer .
Wooo hoooo , I've been wanting an allotment for so long now and have had serious soil envy when reading posts from bloggy friends who already have one , but now I have my own little patch . In the above photo my bit goes down to the second black bin and I can't wait to get stuck in .
I'm not going to mention the wasteland which is hiding behind the greenhouse .... apparantly there is a skip and a couple of bathtubs under all that !!
