Happy Birthday!

March 10th is a big day in my life. It’s my birthday (presents and cake welcome if you’re that way inclined). Not only that, it’s the two year anniversary of my plot. So, it’s a double birthday celebration tomorrow. Just wanted to share a few photographs of the plot from the last two years and a little story with each to explain the processes, simply hover over each image or click on the first one to scroll through them. Thank you all for reading and for all the support over the past two years. Big things coming in the coming weeks/months in the garden, watch this space.

Now, to go cry into my birthday cake and lament my misspent youth. Hold me.

    What a manificient job you did! It looks amazing. What is the wind screen made out of? Have you talked to your allotment neighbors if it works well? We live in a very windy place I would love to know the products name to check it out in my area. I like that it won’t block the sunligt. That has been a concern for us in other wind protection products that we have looked into. I would be greatful for the information.

    You share a birthday with my son, who turned 8 yesterday. Great looking garden, too. I was just looking at a council plot this morning, but living in a foreign country (Spain), I have no idea who to contact about it or how to go about getting one. Anyway, happy birthday and merry gardening!

      Thanks 🙂 My plot is actually privately owned, was trying for a council plot but the waiting list is crazy long, at least 5 years most places here in Ireland. I do know of a UK incentive started by hugh fearnley whittingstall of River Cottage, called Landshare, (link below), maybe someone there could put you wise to something similar in Spain? Might be worth a shot.
