2012 Changes To The Allotment


Over the last couple of months our allotment has been undergoing lots of great changes, I’m not talking in terms of seeds or plants growing this time though. The whole site has had a brand new new face lift. We’ve gone from a dirt track to having a whole road and parking area fitted, not to mention the useful addition of our very own on-site sheds! All of these changes have not only made a whopping difference to the appearance of our allotment but they are going to be hugely beneficial to us, the plot holders, for now and in the future.

I’ve been snapping up pictures of some of the progress made to the site down in the corner where our plot is (116) so its really good to look back and compare just what a difference all the work has made. I’ve also managed to date all the ‘before’ ‘middle’ and ‘after’ pictures, so without further hesitation here they all are:

As you can see, gradually everything has come together on the allotment and I personally think it all looks fabulous. The entire site is booming with life at the moment, its great when you drive up to the gate and see lots of people working away it really makes you want to get started! And obviously with all the rain and sunshine we’ve had lots of exciting things are happening on our own plots.

All of a sudden our plot that we began in November 2011, seems to have come together really nicely. It all began from this:

And today its looking like this:

Just shows what a bit of effort, hard work and commitment can achieve!

Do you like all of the changes to our site? How are you getting along with your own plots?
