Pat and I have plot 6A up towards the top end of America Lane on the right-hand side. We started with a smaller plot close by, about 4 years ago, but got the opportunity to take on this one and have never looked back. Both our plots were originally looked after by our good friend and allotment neighbour John King, so the soil is in great condition.
We've tried to grow most things, although still a little wary of some of the brassicas, with different results each year. This year has been our best ever for broad beans and peas, and as usual we are overrun with courgettes. Its not been so good for onions though with quite a lot of root rot, and the soil dried out too quickly in the winds of March and April.
We've made good friends through gardening here and one pleasure is to wander down and say hello to neighbours and generally be a pest while they're trying to work! It has been good to see some new faces coming in in recent months and really working hard to make their own contribution to the site.
NB: the above comment doesn't apply to the fox who comes back night after night in a vain search to recover the Treasure of the Sierra Madre from the front of the plot!
