I think I must be getting old because I really want an allotment.
I put my name down on the waiting list a while ago but the list is so very long.
A friend of mine told me of some empty plots on the site where they have an allotment so I contacted the man in the know at the council who told me there will be some coming up there soon with a wait of months rather than years. OK so it might be after the main growing season and will more than likely be totally overgrown with all kinds of undergrowth, weeds and god knows what else but I don't care.
So why do I want one. I'll show you why
Fingers crossed I will be able to start doing all that soon and next summer I will have some produce to show you.
