Simon's Allotment

My son laying out his allotment garden plot granted to him late last year, very much a work in progress, for those unfamiliar with the concept :-
An allotment garden, often called simply an allotment, or a community garden is a plot of land made available for individual, non-commercial gardening or growing food plants. rented out by the local council in Simon's case
A grand concept.

A good idea for one to have fresh, home grown vegetables.

Is just one your son's? That would be a lot of work to fill them all.

@dide Thank you Dianne allotments are making a comeback in a big way now, this was a piece of waste ground owned by the local council this time last year, there are now 35 plots being cultivated its early days yet, Simon took a course on bee keeping and got his bees late last year and produced his own honey, made him very proud:)

@bella_ss Thank you Sheralee, each plot is approx 20 x 35 metres in size, this is a large part of Simon's plot, and there are 35 plots all the same size, as I said above this was waste ground this time last year:)

Allotments are such a great idea, hard work but worth it. My son got one a couple of years ago and loves it, although keeping the weeds at bay is a problem!

I thought about getting one a few years ago but I decided to settle for the vegetable patch in my garden

@suesouthwood Thank you for your comment Sue, Simon and the other plot holders had to wait 2 years for High Peak Borough Council to agree to release the land, he is so please to have a plot to work on:)

@pcoulson How fantastic to be making use of waste land. That's a huge plot, you will all have some fabulous veggies from there I'm sure.
