Allotment Additions

The main addition to my allotment this year is the plastic greenhouse.  It came from Wiko and I’m really happy with it so far. I’m determined to have some decent tomatoes this year and it will be really useful to have somewhere to put plants before planting them out, especially as its been pretty cold here recently.

I had quite a bit of help from my parents (thank you!), Dad helped make the wooden frame and Mum helped with just about everything else.  It may seem like overkill to have a wooden frame inside but it can get very windy on the allotment, sheds have been moved (or even overturned!) in storms so I’d rather have too much extra stability than not enough.

The first resident has already moved in; a Rapunzel tomato plant which promises cascading trusses full of fruit.  Fingers crossed!
