Allotment to be

Happy days! I have been allotted my allotment – 2 1/2 rods (rather patronisingly referred to as a “ladies plot” by the manager – more a working person’s plot, not all of us are retired…!). I am completely baffled why they are still using rods as a measurement – what’s wrong with meters – or even feet?! I’m going to take my tape measure next time so “real” measurements to follow. The tap is happily close by too :).

It won’t be (mostly) free until October, and then the last leeks will be lifted in Dec and then it will be mine, for the princely sum of £6.25 per annum. Plus a bit for water.

So more to follow. Probably much more….

This is what it looks like:
