At the end of 2016, I traded in Plot 1- my little Lottie - for my own little Lottie, a human I grew name Charlotte. And who'd have thought it, it's hard work! I just didn't have the time or energy to keep up with the allotment anymore. But when I got it, we lived in a flat with no garden and I craved the outside space. So when we moved it also felt wrong to spend all my time down there and neglect our new garden.
So this spring we decided to do some work so that our own little space was useable. I got a Greenhouse from Gumtree, and we got a company in to install raised beds into a small hill that was useless before (we could never have done a good a job on our own), and now we're ready to go!
