My friend Sue’s allotment shed in Devon is made entirely from recycled materials including the handsome doorknob below.
And on the door of another hut…
And a healthy bed of comfrey of which Sue has two. One for making comfrey tea the other for cutting and laying in the trench for bean plants.
And on my plot the 85 year old mother of an allotment neighbour. Anna has poor sight but loves to do the weeding hence the knee pads.
In february the weather was wet and cold and a trip to the allotment was the last thing I fancied but my Red Baron onion sets were beginning to shoot. So I planted them in a wooden wine box outside the kitchen door. I returned from Devon to find a box of healthy green shoots emerging from 25 onions. They are now in the ground in very straight rows.
