When Michael was looking for an allotment, the council offered him the rubbish tip as a plot. The other allotment holders said it was to far gone. The council wanted cut the plot up in to 10 very small plots but when people came and looked at the amount of work involved no one was daft enough to do all that work
Looks a bit barren
Get weeding, we've all had to start somewhere
The pallets and a little helper arrive
Looks like Michael has put a little seat in the middle of the plot to sit on and plan his beds
Better save these, they might be useful for something
Looks like there's still some way to go
Hmm, is this South facing?
Has he actually started yet?
What a mess, but at least we can see the church now after all that chopping
He got 1 years free rent and 10 tons of top soil
Which certainly helped
It's a cover up
Wonder if this was bonfire night?
I think he's a recycler
I know he's a recycler
Said those slabs might come in handy
Hang on why's his shed on logs? Does it get wet here
Might be able to squeeze a couple of tomatoes in here
Can't wait for the extended growing season
Not only on stilts, but in a cage now, what's going on
Looks like it was all worth it. He started work on it in July 2012 and had planted all the beds by April 2013 every week end and most evenings
Aha, not a shed
What's for breakfast?
Plenty of space to wander about
And guess what, he's taken on the adjoining plot and been working on it since before Christmas. I feel another photoblog coming on!
