Welcome to our allotment in South London, There are 39 plots, most plot holders are growing vegetables, flowers and fruits.
Follow me along the path for a quick look at the plots. ....
Allotment Tour 2009
Terriculture, Thank you for allowing me to visit. It's amazing how much diversity the gardeners are able to get into their plots. I wonder what was in those red bottles. They look very exotic amidst the green cabbages. Is there any penalty if one doesn't use their allotment or keep it up to 'standards'? Looking forward to visiting with you for Part II. Pam
Nice tour, Terri. I think you win hands down for the best lottie so far. Is the pear tree on someone's plot? Or is it in a general area available for the picking? It looks like it has been around for years, and producing nicely.
Hi Pam, Thanks for coming to visit, sorry I have been away so long but will continue with the tour soon.
If your plot gets overgrown with weeds or is really messy the commitee send a letter or several thoughout the season. They have an inspection in early spring and give you until March 1st to clear it or you lose your plot! They have 26 on the waiting list, but usually it takes at least a year to clear the previous plot holders mess up!
You've got me curious about the red bottles, I will investigate the matter... lol
Thank you kindly Dianne! The pear tree is on Anitas plot, she has quite a few fruit trees including apricots (that reminded me of you and your apricot tree) she gave me a some the other day and I made some flapjacks and put some sliced up apricots in, yumm! It was a real treat to have fresh apricots they are quite expensive in the shops here.
Hi Gwen, My plot is number 36, Thanks for coming to visit!
