I gave the allotment office a call today, and I’m now up to 10th on the waiting list. That should mean that the wait is nearly over. I just hope I get a plot in time to get some tomatoes, peas, and beans in this year. It could be a close call.
Meanwhile the BBC is taunting me with The Edible Garden. Alys Fowler may only have a “small Victorian terrace back yard”, but at 20ft x 60ft it puts my 6ft x 15ft shaded raised bed to shame. I have a plan to squeeze courgettes, squash, tomatoes, broad beans, dwarf beans, beetroot, parnsips, and a few salad leaves in, but that’s definitely Plan B. For Plan A, I’ll need an allotment pretty soon.
