hi - I am Jane and have plot 15 on America Lane allotments. I work this plot with two of my daughters, Louise (and ozzy the dog) and Alice, sometimes accompanied by husband Stuart (for the building elements of the plot) and daughter Isabel (aged 2 - start 'em young!!!). My oldest daughter is also an allotment holder here with her partner.
We have held plot 15 for about 4 years starting with the front section and being fortunate to expand into the back portion (with shed) two years ago when we gave up a plot on Oathall allotments.
We love our allotment and find it gives us a sense of calm and achievement - focussing on a mix of fruit and easy veg and cut flowers.
We have until now been mainly weekend and summer evening gardeners due to working full time but I am am now semi retired and hope to be on the allotment more - watch this space!!
