|Welsh poppies growing in the West of Scotland|
As we have decided to make Wales our home in the not too distant future, I decided to go on the local council website to check out the allotment sites. Waiting for an allotment could take up to a 2 years, so I thought I'd go ahead and register my interest. I noted two allotment sites in the area that we are considering moving to. However, as I am not a resident there yet, I had given my fathers details knowing he wouldn’t mind as he has recently got back into the flow of gardening.
Well, guess what my father got a phone call from one of the allotment secretaries. We, albeit through my father are now the owners of a brand new allotment. I’ll share more about the allotment when I get to see it, but I have been told by my father that it is a blank canvas. Other than an apple tree, there is nothing on it, no buildings, no raised beds or plants. Its a large piece of land on the hillside with lots of weeds and brambles. Knowing my Dad, he will have started work on it already. Oh I am so excited.
