I also tried my hand at gardening on an allotment for a few years. It was a wonderful experience and I learned a lot from other gardeners. It was also great to see people who originated from different countries learning about each other and the food of their cultures. Thanks for a great post.


Thanks Janet - starting out on a plot is hardwork but great fun. Enjoy it!
Thanks Kai - I'd love to be a farmer too. I see the allotment as my mini farm ;-)


Fabulous - glad you didn't listen and took the plot on, flying the flag for female allotmenteers the country over! Congrats on 6 years, I am just starting month three, and so far it has mostly been digging out weeds and planning, so your advice is timely.


I have not yet maintained any large amount of land in terms of growing plants, but I'm an avid gardener (with hopes of one day being an organic farmer) and I agree--growing plants is by far one of the most satisfying things about life.

Women often make the best gardeners and farmers. My mom was always (and still is) praised for having the most beautiful garden in the neighborhood.

Good luck on your sixth year!
