A personal journal, open for the world to read, recording the progress of a novice allotmenteer on his allotment.
Weed it and reap.
Friday, 4 May 2012
If the artist Christo had an allotment I think it might look something like this...
...but he's probably not so cutting edge as to attempt to do anything so radical (or daft) as to cultivate grapevines in a North Lincolnshire swamp where, even in May, the so-called Queen of Months, there is a serious threat of damage from vicious sub-zero temperatures.
I am not Alan Titchmarsh. I am a novice and amateur allotmenteer, learning as I go and learning from my mistakes, trowel and error. This Blog is a record of progress on my own plot and it is not intended to provide reliable or authorative advice. I do not endorse any products or equipment referred to in the Blog. So, don't blame me if your wellies leak, you poke yourself in the eye with a dibber, the slugs eat your greens and a triffid claims squatters rights in your shed.
