I have an allotment because it means having my own outdoor space to play in!
My favourite memories so far of this plot are: replacing the shed roof with my friend Heather in glorious sunshine; picking my first successful crop onions and garlic; working alongside my neighbours who are so kind and generous; and lastly the feeling I get when I see things I've grown from seed bear fruit.
I love using natural materials where I can and am inspired by Alys Fowler and Ray Mears!
I'd really like to get a greenhouse for next year and plant a hazel tree (or two!) to coppice in the years to come. The biggest veg growing success so far has to be growing florence fennel bulbs - they're beautiful and delicious!
