Category Archive: Lavender
>After dodging monsoon rains, watching a smoke from a scrap yard fire we was able to get a lot done with help from a couple of friends (one is now on the list to hopefully get 1b)
Bit out of date now (the clump of grass closest to the camera is gone) but this is what can happen if you just dig
We was given 7 lavender clippings by Brian so they get lined up next to the door to the hut.
Apart from the old asbestos roof which is to be removed and replaced by the council the building itself is quite sound, was told by the council that it’s available to us to use as a shed. According to one of the older allotment holders we’ve now got the most secure sheds in the site (well after a door is on) bit of cleaning up the guy before us allowed fly tipping so there is a bit to deal with.
Potatoes are growing well got some more (earlies) as a ‘just in case they grow’, hoping to get some turf so the area in front of the hut looks nice and that it’s safe for the mutts to finally come.
Since the council also dealt with the pile of rubbish and clipped tree I was able to plant some sunflowers along the side of the hut.
