My Plot

Plot 46, Burnside Allotments, Cambridge

I'm cream crackered!!

Got up early this morning and went to the local industrial estate. I got 4 large pallets, 2 small pallets and 4 square wood things that look sort of like gates. I then had to lug them halfway across the allotment site as it was too wet to take the car in.
After lots of re-arrangement (I am a woman - it's got to look right!) I got compost bins, muck enclosure, leafmould bin and waterbutt all in their correct places.
I was also asked whether my shed was going to be a cafe or a bar - someone else asked whether it was going to be a ladies loo - little do they know - it already is!!!
Set out two beds for the strawberry plants and started digging one of them. I also potted up the strawberry plants - all 45 of them! I have got Honeoye, Florence and Cambridge Favorite (the last being an obvious choice)
I also planted the fig tree and potted up the Octavia raspberry canes. I have put the other three varieties into water ready for me to pot them up tomorrow as I have not got any idea where I am going to plant them yet!
I want to build a fruit cage on one side of the plot with the raspberries, gooseberries and currants. I would also like to plant some blueberries in there but will need to dig a hole and change the soil for ericacious compost.

At last my broad beans are starting to sprout
A view across my plot. you can see where I've planted the fig - just in front of the shed. I have had to enclose it with mesh otherwise my stick loving dog will pull it up. It does not matter whether the sticks are growing or not, he's not fussy.

Talking of stick loving dogs here he is - very tired after a long walk yesterday and an afternoon at the plot - Just before this photo was taken he was snoring very loudly!

Hi Emma - i am mightily impressed with your construction skills! The shed is a thing of beauty! What a cosy hideaway for you and Buddy when the inevitable wind and rain arrives. Green with envy!

Thanks for the post Emma, & for the link, now reciprocated.

Your shed looks fantastic! I'm going to use your early development pictures as the template for my shed2.

Got some great wood from local building site this week, all 8 feet long & only for the cost of 6 cans for the workmen... not requested by them. I was going to get them some cakes but the foreman suggested cream puffs wouldn't be appreciated in the same way!

Regards, John (Allotment Heaven)

Wow! You have been busy! Love the shed, and everything in it and the allotment do look arranged just right. Just happened to be visiting some links I hadn't been to in a while. So glad I checked in here. Enjoy!
