Return to Eden

This is my wee allotment in the North West of England. Never before cultivated, mown meadow, full of stones and bone dry.

I am quite nr the brook and since these photos were taken (in July) it went from the hottest Sumner to the wettest. So I came back from a month in the US/Canada to the grass being a foot long again (in September).

Progress is, that I’ve re-mowed, got 3/4 of it covered in viscuine and half of this covered in woodchip (10 big barrows/350+ shovels). The Shed is awaiting its hardcore foundations, while laid on site, I’m gradually shifting the ballast to do this and I’ve got some wooden frames to contain soil/chippings to grow in.

My compost bin is full and I’ve been growing at home in 2 ready built beds, and beans in old tires.

The allotments hope to have Bees next Spring and as I was a beekeepers Daughter, I’m keen to help out.

So still in the planning stages, but 1 other allotment plot does it the Eden way… So I’ve help on hand.
