A is for …
… allotment holder. No surprises there then!
This is our 7th summer growing our own veg and it’s taken that long to make peace with the weeds on our plot (we reclaimed some extra ground at the edge of the field and we wage a constant battle with nettles, brambles, thistles and bind weed).
In September 2004 when Pat and Robin first invited us to share the top end of their plot it was looking like this.
What on earth were we thinking? (G doesn’t look too impressed does he)
It seemed like a moment of madness at the time. A few people told us as much.
There is no denying it’s hard work having an allotment. But it’s proved to be one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.
