The boy wandered around the site with camera in hand and has captured an eclectic mix of shots that convey the diversity of folk, their interests and how they garden.
Does anyone else look at that broken down van and think it could be made-over into a fab ‘shed’. There is a token attempt at growing behind the van, but mostly this is a scrap metal business but with many other plotters doing deals for all manner of useful bits and bobs.
Anyone remember Toy Story? This could be grown-up Sid’s allotment…Actually, the plotter is lovely, just has a wicked sense of humour.
A different kind of deterrent to keep the magpies and pigeons at bay.
This is the final resting place for all those garden nic-naks
Recycling and repurposing at its finest
Be back in a bit…
Love this. Who would have thought to give their shed the camo treatment? But then what else do you do with young teenagers during the summer holidays…
A more traditional allotment shed look
Our community wildlife garden. The hotel is still under construction.
Wouldn’t be an allotment without chickens.
Then this grand-looking chap – clearly knows how to pose.
That’s us, how does it compare to your site or area?
Looks like fun! Is that a tropical bird in the last picture?
It’s a golden pheasant, native to China but now quite widespread in south and east of England in the wild as well as cages.
I’d never heard of this bird before. Thank you!
Your allotments look a lot more fun than the ones I was on, as far as I remember. Anyway, great that you are next to some people with a sense of humour.
It all looks rather familiar as my site has plots that range from immaculate to a complete tip. Council don’t help as some plots have been untended for years. xx
