So on the phone I realised that we had received our rent renewal letter this morning. (£35 for a half plot / £50 for a ful one.) We have 14 days to pay and then good old A24a is ours again for another year! It has got me thinking about everyone on our site... okay, everyone in Field A... okay!, ....our next door neighbours. We haven't seen them for a long while and, well maybe, just maybe they aren't so interested in the old Allotmenteering (sacrilege! Allotmeenteering Rocks). So, maybe we could expand????
Well we'll have to wait and see but that patch of ground, that little piece of Eden is staring us in the face every time we go down there. And we're going down tonight again! Torture!! I have ideas for it....but I mustn't get ahead of myself. We have pretty much run out of room on our half of the plot, you see so....STOP. I can't do this to myself, I can't get excited.
Others have recently returned to their plots and started to give it a ggod overhaul after winter, some have added structures and planted new onion bulbs etc. It has been lovely to see more than the few core people that are Lottie Regulars. As I call them, my 'Eden Lottie Folk'.
I thought this was quite funny. The full plot just below us did a BIG renovation job over the past couple of weeks. Their soil is looking better but they've decided to just stick to a big bed of spuds again this year. Unfortunately the Scarecrow was in the way - look at the state of the wee darling. Yes it is a school girl, sad really..
Which makes me think of another thing - I have to make a Scarecrow! (Or 2 ?......)
